Normandy: German Radar at Douvres

After the Pegasus bridge we drove to a German radar installation at Douvre de Delivirande between Caen and the coast. The exhibit was closed but from outside the fence you could see the rather sophisticated German equipment. While British radar played a pivotal role in the Battle of Britain, German radar technology was much more advanced. You can learn more about the history of radar at this link.
