The Redoute looks from here just like an Iron Age fort converted over the years as a Redoute to cover this side of Cherbourg which is ringed with forts. When the Germans arrived they would need a good position to watch over the port.

There are four bunkers, two Leitstand's (fire control) and two Peilstand's (spotting station).
