PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - Mediterranean Sea - Scuttling of the French Fleet. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

With the Fall of France in June 1940, the French Navy ceased to operate against the Germans and Italians. To prevent the enemy from obtaining the French ships, the British attacked Mers-el-Kebir in July and fought the Battle of Dakar in September to neutralize the French ships, keeping them out of the hands of the Germans.

As German forces moved to occupy Vichy France, Hitler desired to take the French fleet by force. Once secured, the larger surface ships were to be transferred to the Italians while the submarines and smaller vessels would join the Kriegsmarine.

Instead the almost the entire French fleet was scuttled. Later Charles de Gaulle and the Free French severely criticized the action, stating that the fleet should have tried to escape, the scuttling prevented the ships from falling into Axis hands. None of the larger ships saw service again during the war.

After the liberation of France, de Laborde was tried and convicted of treason for not trying to save the fleet. Found guilty, he was sentenced to death. This was soon commuted to life imprisonment before he was granted clemency in 1947.
