U.S. Engineers pass a smashed German turret top as they advance
across a beach near St. Raphael, southern France. Before being
knocked out by Allied assault troops, the turret was able to cover
approaches on a 90-degree angle with its MG34 machine gun
and 20-mm cannon. AP WirePhoto via U.S. Army Signal Corps
