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.
