The Ob. West HQ At Saint-Germain-EN-Laye (After the Battle 141)

 
 
Jean Paul Pallud tells how after seven months of 'Phoney War', the Wehrmacht launched its attack in the West on May 10, 1940 and within six weeks the Netherlands, Belgium and France had been defeated, as had the British Expeditionary Force. The Armistice with France was signed on June 22 and hostilities ceased threee days later. Of the three army groups that had fought and won the swift campaign, Heeresgruppe A was designated to remain in the West and Generalfeldmarschall Gerd von Rundstedt and his staff soon established themselves at Saint-Germain-en-Laye, just west of Paris. RAF Target Mapping Centre at Hughenden Manor Hughenden Manor, well known as the residence of Victorian politician Benjamin Disraeli, was in the Second World War home of the top-secret RAF target mapping centre known as 'Hillside'. Employing a motley team of talented mapmakers, it was here, in the quiet scenery of the Chiltern Hills, that all the target maps for Allied bombing missions were produced.
