Description: November 1942 The incomplete French battleship Jean Bart at Casablanca, Morocco on 16 November 1942, showing damage from 16-inch shells and 1000-pound bombs inflicted in action with U.S. Navy forces on 8 November. The large hole and upended deck structure by her hangar appears to have been caused by a bomb.
