German Giant Wurzburg Radar

This shelled German Giant Wurzburg radar overlooks a Normandy landing beach, possibly at Point du Hoc. The German radar network was neutralized by a combination of direct attacks, electronic jammers, and the dropping of Chaff. The German air response to the invasion was nearly non-existent as a result.
