November 1940: Landing near Libreville

Designed by Jacques "jdrommel" David

After the capitulation of France in June 1940, French Equatorial Africa became a major strategic objective for the Free French Forces. In August 1940, Chad, Ubangi-Shari and French Congo embraced General De Gaulle’s cause. Only Gabon remained loyal to the Vichy France government, so the decision was made to conquer the country. On November 9th, 1940 a fratricide struggle took place: Free French troops fought Vichy forces for control of the airfield of Libreville.
