Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Rommelspargel ("Rommel's asparagus") were 13-to-16-foot (4 to 5 m) logs that were placed in the fields and meadows of Normandy to cause damage to the expected invasion of Allied military gliders and paratroopers. Also known in German as Holzpfähle ("wooden poles"), the wooden defenses were placed in early 1944 in coastal areas of France and Holland against airlanding infantry. Rommelspargel were named after Field Marshal Erwin Rommel who ordered their design and usage; Rommel himself called the defensive concept Luftlandehindernis ("Air-landing obstacle").
