We actually visited Maisy Battery at the end of our holiday and was the last area of interest we went to see. Well it turned many things we had seen, heard about and read, totally on it’s head. The battery itself isn’t as pristine and well organised as many of the other visitors centres and museums, but that actually adds to the authenticity of the place. It was the only place we visited, that you could actually imagine what it must have been like to live in the trenches on the Western Front.
The enthusiasm by the owners to excavate the area and get to the bottom of the truth is very admirable and spellbinding. If you get the chance speak to the you chap in the cabin then do. He is so knowledgable about the area and the story behind Pointe D’Hoc and the American Rangers.
We can’t wait for the new book to be released.
