Inner Harbour of Cherbourg, 1944
Here we see a map of the inner harbour at Cherbourg as it was in 1944, showing the main approach roads and the inner lines of forts. There was also a line of forts across the outer harbour, to defend against any naval attack, and they did engage the Allied fleet that bombarded the port in June 1944.
