Casablanca - The Naval Battle of Casablanca was a series of naval engagements fought between American ships covering the invasion of North Africa and Vichy French
ships defending the neutrality of French Morocco in accordance with the Second Armistice at Compiègne during World War II. The last stages of the battle consisted of
operations by German U-boats which had reached the area the same day the French troops surrendered. (Wikipedia)
