Uncover the Secrets of Pointe du Hoc

A short drive brings you to the hallowed grounds of Pointe du Hoc, strategically positioned between Utah and Omaha beaches. This site played a pivotal role during the D-Day landings, serving as a focal point for the daring amphibious assault launched by U.S. forces on June 6, 1944. Lieutenant Colonel James E. Rudder, leading the 2nd Ranger Battalion, heroically scaled the 100-foot cliffs to neutralize German positions, with Lieutenant Colonel Max F. Schneider's 5th Ranger Battalion providing crucial reinforcements.

Immerse Yourself in the Battle-Scarred Landscape

Take a moment to pay homage and reflect, while the Visitor Center offers a comprehensive array of services, allowing you to gain a deeper understanding of the monumental significance of the D-Day landings as one of history's greatest military achievements.
