During the Seven Years War a French invasion of Great Britain was planned to take place in 1759 during the Seven Years' War, but due to various factors (including naval defeats at the Battle of Lagos and the Battle of Quiberon Bay) was never launched. The British therefore decided to blockade of Le Havre, which began in September of 1759. In November 1761 Commodore James Young was appointed Commander-in-Chief, Le Havre.
During World War One the French port city of Le Havre on the English Channel used by the British Expeditionary Force and developed into a primary base to support naval operations for France and her Allies in the Great War.
