Operation Harborage

During the final days of World War II, Operation Harborage was part of the overall Allied operation to capture German atomic weapons scientists, material and facilities.

Harborage teams were directed toward the cities of Hechingen, Bisingen and Haigerloch. These centers of the German nuclear effort were all scheduled to be occupied by the French.

By ensuring American technical intelligence units swept the area, the French were locked out of the lively post-war trade in nuclear scientists.
