D-Day Beach Obstacles.

Much has been written about the obstacles placed by the Germans to obstruct the landings and their role in making the D-Day landings more difficult and more perilous. The obstacles took many forms and some were more effective than others.

The most famous of them all is undoubtedly the Czech Hedgehog, which was liberally deployed along the Atlantic Wall. Many of these obstacles remain around Normandy, Brittany and the Atlantic coast; Hedgehogs, Belgian Gates and Pyramids to name a few. But what did they actually look like? Here are some of them.
