Railway Yard at Juvisy after raid, 18 April 1944
Here we see the major railway yard at Juvisy, near Paris, after it was hit by a mix of Lancasters and Halifaxes from Bomber Command on the night of 18 April 1944. The yard and the town were both badly damaged in the raid, part of the attack on French communications before the start of Operation Overlord. This sort of damage looks impressive, but railway lines were fairly easy to repair, so the attacks needed to be repeated to be truly effective.
