That is a lot of missions.

German observation point. This bunker was the first to report ships and landing crafts. This bunker held out for six+ days. The captain then escaped.

They guy giving the tour showed me all of this stuff, its for sale.. I would have like a couple of little things, but getting them home… nigh impossible.

Original Moser! it is nice.

Tile floors in the bunker! It’s good to be the Capitan.

This outpost was the first to call in reports.
