Of course the city of Brest experienced war damage during the takeover by German in the early stages of WWII, and then the bombing by Allied Forces, however it seems like the greatest damage to the city came from the shelling and fighting as US Forces "liberated" the city from German occupation.  The caption of this photo translates to, "Aerial view of part of the city center of Brest, in September 1944."  No wonder that it is difficult to find many old buildings in current day Brest.
