120MM GUN BUNKERS: Overlooking the cliffs of the East Boat Basin were three large concrete bunkers. Only one was still standing, with the other two destroyed by American naval and aerial bombardment. Standing atop this bunker you could see directly down the flank of the landing beaches.

Behind these bunkers were a series of mortar positions that rained down upon the Marines and Sailors on the beach.
