Reconstruction of Bridges in France During and after the 1939/45 War, with particular reference to Site Organisation and Conditions

THE reconstruction of bridges in France imposed a considerable effort during and after the 1939-45 War. It was necessary to devote to it the available resources in manpower and material, taking priority over the reconstruction of houses, of which, however, a multitude of French people had been deprived. Nevertheless, in spite of difficulties of all kinds, large public works were reconstructed, frequently on lines entirely different from the original design. Rene Breffeil
