In late July 1944 the Allies moved north to capture the port of Brest, France to use it to re- supply the Allied advance. On August 7, 1944 American troops reached Brest that was fortified with 40,000 German troops, light flak and naval guns. Company A 705th TD Battalion M18 "I Dont Want A" was there as part of the American artillery barrages combined with aerial bombing and naval guns. When the Germans surrendered on September 19, 1944 Brest had been completely destroyed and the port facilities made useless by the Germans.
