FRANCE UNDER THE ALLIES BOMBS
Unnecessary civilian casualties
After 4 years of Nazi occupation, the French welcomed the liberation by the Allied forces. Immediately afterward, they focused entirely on the reconstruction of the country, occulting the dark years of the war.
But as time went by, and thanks to historical research, questions began to emerge. Indeed, French cities were heavily bombed by Allied aviation, but was the sacrifice of the civilian population necessary? Were there strategic mistakes, and why were they not acknowledged?
Through the tragic destiny of 3 cities (Le Havre, Royan, and Rouen), this collection opens a dark and still little-known page of WWII.
