Another place to get the D day spine chilling experience. This site is well laid out and it is possible to go inside German bunkers and think what it must have been like for all those involved in the invasion.

The audio guide is great. Set off and explore. I find the manikins in some areas somewhat characterless but beyond this you get an idea of what it was about. Not far from Azeville Battery so combine them. I have been to both several times.
