Tucked away in a corner of Ft Lee, stands one of the few remaining WWII era Krupp rail guns. Nicknamed "Anzio Annie" by the allies, this K5 was used extensively by the Germans all throughout WWII, first in 1940 for the invasion of France, and later in the war as a defense tool against the American invasion of Italy.
