    I would say yes. It was certainly more effective than simply bombing cities.

    After Anglo-American break out from Normandy the destroyed French transportation network caused supply shortages which allowed Germany time to establish new defensive positions in Holland, Metz and Vosges. Otherwise hard charging commanders such as Patton might have jumped across the Rhine during fall 1944.
