Hospital Caroline at Frioul isle
May 27, 1944,Marseilles is bombarded massively by Anglo-American aviation. The allied embarcment will intervene only on August 15th in the Var, but they progress extremely quick and the army of liberation, under the orders of the General Lattre de Tassigny, arrives at the doors of the city the 19th. The Germans oppose a savage resistance then, and the batteries of the Frioul can cause the Allies heavy losses. The aviators of the Free Air French Force, supported by the massive bombardment of the American battleship Nevada, finally reduce to nothing the insular forces in August 24th/ 25th. The islands are ravaged. The old Lazaret of the islands, the Hospital Caroline, is nothing any more but one field of ruins.
