50 photos of the liberation of Paris

The Liberation of Paris (or Battle for Paris) took place during World War II and lasted from 19 August 1944, until the occupying German garrison surrendered on 25 August 1944. It started with an uprising by the French Resistance against the German garrison. On 24 August, the French Forces of the Interior received reinforcements from the Free French Army of Liberation and from the U.S. Third Army under General Patton.

Paris, the capital city of France, had been ruled by Nazi Germany since the signing of the Second Compiègne Armistice on 22 June 1940, when the German Army occupied northern and western France.

While this battle resulted in the liberation of Paris, there was still heavy fighting before the rest of France was liberated as a large portion of the country remained occupied until after the campaign in southern France which extended into the south-western region of the Vosges Mountains during August–September. Alsace and Lorraine in eastern France remained under occupation, and the German army fought doggedly in these areas for the remainder of 1944 and into 1945.
