The Lounges-sur-Mer battery is located near Longues-sur-Mer on the French Atlantic coast in Normandy on the English Channel. On the day of the invasion, the battery was fired upon by the battleship USS Arkansas (US Navy) and the cruisers HMS Ajax (Royal Navy) and FFL Georges Leygues (Force Françaises Libres). On June 6, the battery fired 170 shots without sinking or damaging any ship of the invasion fleet. The entire battery crew (184 men, half of them over 40 years old) surrendered without a fight on the morning of June 7. It is the only gun emplacement of that time in which the guns remain.
