During D-Day this batterie was a prime objective, because it could shell both Gold and Omaha Beach. Therefore a few cruisers of the Allied Forces opened fire to take out this batterie. The guns went silent after a fierce fight.
They opened fire again on the beaches and the Allied ships attacked this batterie once more. One by one the guns where knocked out. However, it is one of the few batteries that still have the guns inside the bunkers.
