The Cherbourg story : Cherbourg, the first major Continental port liberated by the Allies, optimized the pattern of engineering skill which military salvage experts have used to restore Tripoli, Bizerte, Palerme and Naples and make them booming supply centers feeding war material to the Allied advances against the Nazis. For two years, U.S. and British Navy and Army engineers studied photographs and data on Cherbourg and prepared their plans and equipment in England. As soon as the port was liberated June 27, 1944 three weeks after "D-Day" they arrived with scores of ships loaded with special equipmet. They surveyed the damage done by retreating Germans, found their plans correct. Engineering crews were sped to selected tasks and began the work of reconstructing harbor facilities, repairing rail lines and putting the port to use. In 30 days, Cherbourg was handling more tonnage than it ever had in peacetime. These pictures, many of which have just been released by the censors, show how it was done = [Deux locomotives sur la voie ferrée de la digue du Homet (en arrière-plan, un ferry boat) ].
