High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! After the Fall of
France and the Armistice of 1940, France was divided in two zones,
one occupied by the Germans, and the "Free Zone," administered by
the Vichy regime. The armistice stipulated that the French fleet
would be largely disarmed and confined to its harbours, under
French control. The Allies were concerned that the fleet, which
included some of the most advanced warships of the time, might fall
into enemy hands, which led to the destruction of the French Fleet
at Mers-el-Kebir by the British on 3 July 1940 and the Battle of
Dakar on 23 September 1940.
