Our advice is to go to both Maisy and Pointe du Hoc on your visit.

You cannot fully understand the role of Pointe du Hoc in the defence of Normandy – without understanding the role that Maisy played as well.

Spend your money wisely on books and on your tours and you will get more out of your Normandy experience. Ask your tour company if they visit Maisy Battery – if not, we can recommend some that do.

There are a number around – but here two guides that we personally vouch for. You can have our assurance that their tours are top notch and we have no hesitation in recommending them to you.
