After 4 years of Nazi occupation, the French welcomed the liberation of their territory by the allied forces. Immediately afterwards, they focused entirely on the reconstruction of the country, occulting the dark years of the war.
But as the years went by, and thanks to historical research, questions began to emerge. Indeed, French cities were heavily bombed by the allied aviation, but was the sacrifice of the civilian population really 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.
