Bombed Railway-Yard, Saintes, 1944
Here we see the damage caused to the railway yard at Saintes, north of Bordeaux, by a Bomber Command raid on 23 June 1944. This was part of the campaign to disrupt communications in France and even if the tracks could be rapidly repaired, the loss of rolling stock was significant.
