my grandfather was in the first wave of rangers that climbed point du hoc during operation overlord.  if you guys dont know what im talking about, there were supposedly a huge artillery battery at a cliff called point du hoc that overlooked the beaches of normandy.  the rangers were sent in, had to climb the cliffs using ropes, under withering fire and hand grenades, had to clear overlapping defences of mg nests, bunkers, and trenches, only to find that the gun batterys were replaced with telephone poles....  :'(
