    The 43-foot hole in the steel and concrete roof of this U-boat shelter at Brest was marked up to the credit of the R.A.F Others of these notorious submarine pens, claimed as absolutely bomb proof by the Germans, and from which they had so frequently launched attacks against Allied shipping in the Atlantic, were found in similar condition cracked wide open by block busters, when U.S forces under General Middleton took possession of the port. The garrison commanded by General Hermann Bernhard Ramcke, ran up the white flag on September 19th 1944.
