“GUN EMPLACEMENT OVERLOOKING BEACH. This 76-mm howitzer (Russian) was in the strongpoint ast of E-1 draw, and was sited for flanking fire on the approaches. Open emplacements were vulnerable to naval gunfire. (Photograph taken June, 1944).”

Nice view, it must have been terrifying looking at the huge invasion force and you having to operate one of these guns, probably under suppressive fire of some sort.

Nope Seth, Dushka is open bolt gun, so bolt isn't cycling, it's ready to fire though.
