Liberation of Paris

I'm a little late with this video that shows the underground bunker that was the HQ for the FFI in the final days of the German occupation.

Huh, I didn't know the actual bunker was open... Dang it, I missed it.

You didn't miss much. It was mostly a series of empty rooms unlike Churchill's bunker and the Battle Box in Singapore. The FFI only used it for a few days. It's original purpose was as the comm center for Paris utilities. It had the phone lines already installed so it made a good choice for the FFI HQ.

PE, thanks for that. The Battle Box is something else!!!
