      You're probably thinking of the British attack on Mers-el-Kébir, where the British destroyed the French fleet at anchor off the Algerian coast. France had previously surrendered to the Nazis, and the British were afraid that Germany would take France's ships to enlarge their fleet and possibly challenge the British navy. This is the reason they destroyed the French ships, to prevent them from falling in German hands.

    In WWI, France humiliated the germans by putting all the Generals, Captains, every high-rank on a train and making them sign an embarrassing peace agreement. When France was defeated in WWII, Hitler found the same train, put the France high-ranks in it and made them GO TO FRANCE with that train. Then Hitler burned the train
