Paris marks liberation from Nazis You ungrateful Frog Bastiges. SO the French liberated Paris did they? Really? Was it like the Warsaw uprising then? Or did the vast majority of the French population sit around on their derrieres ,except a few brave Communists who rose against the German garrison, and got soundly spanked for their temerity? Eisenhower made a political decision,in the face of strong lobbying by De Gaulle, to allow 2nd Armoured to enter Paris to "Liberate it" The German Garrison already wanted to jack and save Paris from house to house fighting, in direct contradiction of Hitler's orders. Liberation of Paris by the French my couilles. It was us, the Americans,some Free Frenchmen and ironically the Germans that saved Paris. The Brave "Resistance" in Paris didn't put in an appearance till after we rolled up , then set about vital resistance tasks like tarrring and feathering "collaborators" and generally behaving in typical beastly French fashion. I wonder when the French are going to celebrate Dunkirk Day? That would be the celebration where WE lifted over 100,000 French troops from the mole, in order to fight another day, or are they going to conveniently forget/re-write that too?
