Saving Private Ryan - Reverse Obstacles?
So this slip-up can be seen almost throughout the entire Normandy beach landing scene. The very large tree trunk obstacles that some guys are hiding behind and meant to stop tanks, are actually reversed! They should be facing the other way! I can't believe they had such a huge slip-up.

This is a false statement, up and down the Atlantic wall many obstacle were built to stop the LCVP's (Landing Craft Vehicle Personell) from landing. Some were placed facing out toward the ocean to pierce the incoming higgins boats and tanks, others were placed facing the shore to flip the boats if they attempted to land at high tide

Actually they were there to stop landing craft, not tanks, but having checked a photograph that shows hundreds of these things on the beach, the vertical pole ought to be on the beach side, not the seaward side. You are entirely correct!

WOW.. This is a major slip-up! I can't believe the germans placed them the wrong way.. At least now we know why they lost the war.
