Allied Bombing of the French Ports, 1942-1943!
The allied forces were powerless to exercise proper control over the vast western European coast from Narvik to the Bay of Biscay. Unable to impose an effective blockade of the German submarines operating from French ports, during the period from 1942 to 1943 they used air raids on the ports of Lorient, St. Nazaire, La Pallice and to a lesser extent against Brest and Bordeaux. Most of Lorient and St. Nazaire were destroyed in the process, in a deliberate attempt to reduce the u boats activities.
