Site 2 : Pointe du Hoc. La pointe du Hoc surplombe une falaise de 25 à 30 mètres de haut avec une plage de galets d'une dizaine de mètres de large à ses pieds. Située entre les plages de Utah Beach (à l’ouest) et Omaha Beach (à l'est), la pointe avait été fortifiée par les Allemands et, selon les reconnaissances aériennes alliées, était équipée de pièces d'artillerie lourde dont la portée menaçait les deux plages voisines. Il avait été jugé primordial, pour la réussite du débarquement, que les pièces d'artillerie soient mises hors service le plus rapidement possible. Cette mission fut confiée au 2e bataillon de Rangers américain qui réussit à prendre le contrôle du site au prix de lourdes pertes. Sur les 225 Rangers qui débarquèrent ce jour-là, 135 (en date du 8 juin 1944, en comptant les hommes du LCA 860) furent tués. Le lieutenant-colonel James Earl Rudder lui-même fut blessé par deux fois durant cette opération. En janvier 1979, la France a légué une partie des terrains de la pointe du Hoc aux États-Unis. Photos d'archives non disponible à la vente sur ce site mais uniquement présente pour situer le contexte hi // Site 2 : Pointe du Hoc. The Pointe du Hoc is overlooking a cliff 25 to 30 meters high with a pebble beach about ten meters wide at its feet. Located between the beaches of Utah Beach (west) and Omaha Beach (east), the tip was fortified by the Germans and, according to Allied aerial reconnaissance, was equipped with heavy artillery whose scope threatened two nearby beaches. It hab been considered essential, for the success of the landing, that the guns are taken out of service as soon as possible. This mission was assigned to the 2nd Battalion U.S. Rangers. They succeed to take control of the site with heavy losses. Amoung the 225 Rangers who landed that day, 135 (on date of 8 June 1944, counting men of LCA 860) were killed. Lieutenant Colonel James Earl Rudder himself was wounded twice during this operation. In January 1979 , France has donated part of the land of the Pointe du Hoc in the United States.
