Abstract: In this paper we interpret the solutions to a particular Galois embedding problem over an extension $ K/F$ satisfying $ \operatorname {Gal}(K/F) \simeq \mathbb{Z}/p^n\mathbb{Z}$ in terms of certain Galois submodules within the parameterizing space of elementary $ p$-abelian extensions of $ K$; here $ p$ is a prime. Combined with some basic facts about the module structure of this parameterizing space, this allows us to exhibit a class of $ p$-groups whose realization multiplicity is unbounded.
