Normandy "Name Trees" Cut Down

#3
A shameful reminder of how bureaucrats and politicians really feel about those who gave their all to save their sorry arses when the odds were stacked against them.

It is indeed a great shame, but it has its lighter moments:
Claude Quétel, a French historian and Second World War specialist, was horrified when he discovered what he called a catastrophe and a shameless act. “It is a typically French failing to wipe out the traces of the past,” he told The Times. “I am indignant."
Couldn't he at least have been outraged????????

I surprised at the French cutting down trees. I thought they had a policy of ensuring that their roads are always lined with trees.

This is so that the German army can march in the shade. :twisted:
