Batterie de Maisy Normandie

Post by Chazette » 03 Jan 2007 18:43

Dear men
excuse is in french
in this web site give me by Moonraker is more funny because at the batterie of Maisy
you have :
- 12 canons de 88 mm
- 6 canons de 155 mm
- 4 canons de 105 mm
- Plusieurs canons de 50 mm

is more than Lindemann!!!!!!

Une batterie "parfaitement connue"...
J'ai consulté le livre d'Alain Chazette ("Le Mur de l'Atlantique en Normandie") aux éditions Heimdal (2001). Sur 80 pages, il n'y a qu'un paragraphe de moins de dix lignes sur cette batterie, indiquant la présence de 4 casemates protégeant des canons lourds.
J'ai visité la batterie à plusieurs reprises en compagnie de Sterne. Il s'agit en effet d'un site extraordinaire, de plus de 40 hectares, soit près de 4 fois la superficie du site de la Pointe du Hoc... Un site que personne n'a visité déterré auparavant. J'ai personnellement vu plus de 4 emplacements pour canon. D'après les informations de Sterne, il contenait :
- 12 canons de 88 mm
- 6 canons de 155 mm
- 4 canons de 105 mm
- Plusieurs canons de 50 mm
Si ces informations sont exactes, il apparaît que plus de 16 canons, et pas des moindres, ont été "oubliés" par Chazette. Pour une batterie "parfaitement connue", on est loin du compte. Le mystère demeure...

pour les français la batterie est archi connu voir mon livre de 1997 chez Heimdal le mur de l'atlantique en normandie il y a des photos et meme un plan
pour se qui est du second chez le meme editeur ce dernier à oublier de mettre 3 pages sur ce secteur et moi j'y peu rien
cordialement
A Chazette

Hello, now I can put the link, because somebody the hèberger on the forum D-DAYde maisy.
We see although the battery of 155mn do not can wait for the beach of omha, but for the point of the percèe.
