Does anyone know of a good website that lists French warships of WW2 and the officers that commanded them. I've found a great site for the Kriegsmarine which lists all their warships and the officers but I can't find anything comparable for the Marine Nationale. I'm wondering if anyone out there knows where I can obtain such information.

Thanks for any help.

Hello,
You can find a list with CO here :

As a bonus : Marine Nationale in a 1939 movie here : http://www.ecpad.fr/marine-1939-semaine-du-9-octobre-1939/

Its also worth checking out this site. Although its mostly Royal Navy there is also 'stuff' on other Allied navies including the French.

I have a few books on the French Fleet so if you have any specfic questions I may be able to help.

Skyland and Warspite are fantastic sources for info on the French. A lot of Skyland's work has gone into my Mods.

+1. Skyland is the go-to source for the French. If you haven't already, download his mod, which adds a good part of the French OOB to the game. I used quite a bit of his excellent work in Focus Pacific.

I used http://www.navypedia.org/ships/france/fr_index.htm extensively for Focus Pacific as well along with other, scattered sources.

If you add the French OOB, I would also recommend looking into adding the St. Louis class heavy cruisers that were planned but never ordered.
