Bombings and shellings
|The planes were used first for observation, but later for bombing (Aerodrome
of Metz Frescaty for exemple, railway stations or towns).
Nancy, Lunéville, Pont-à-mousson and Toul have been bombed by planes and also by Zeppelins (German balloons).
The town of Nancy was also shelled by German's long range canons.
