Seventy-five years ago, on the night of 3rd/4th May 1944, 346 Avro Lancasters and 16 de Havilland Mosquitoes of RAF Bomber Command’s Nos 1 and 5 Groups mounted an attack on the German Wehrmacht barracks and battle-tank depot near the French village of Mailly-Le-Camp, 85 miles east of Paris. Mailly-Le-Camp was in a strategic location from which it would be possible for the German tanks to be quickly mobilised to engage the Allied invasion force after the planned D-Day invasion in Normandy. The Allied High Command decided to remove the threat of the tanks by strategic bombing.
