Welcome to Bizerte
Night raid on the Allied-occupied French North African port of Bizerte, Tunisia.
“LCIs put up a screen of anti-aircraft fire from their 20mm guns during a raid of enemy planes on Allied installations in Bizerte, 1942.”
LCI’s and their modified LCS sisters were some of the most valuable if unsung small combat vessels of the latter part of WWII. We covered one of the last remaining, USS LCS-102, in a Warship Wednesday last year.
