TRUE STORY AND FACTS ABOUT D-DAY AND THE FREE FRENCH/FRENCH RESISTANCE & THE EVENTS DATING  FROM JUNE 5 1944 TO JUNE 28 1944

ON THE EVENING OF THE 5TH OF JUNE, 1944, BBC'S RADIO BROADCAST A   "PERSONAL" MESSAGE"  IN FRENCH THAT SAID "I WILL BRING THE EGLANTINE" . RESISTANT LEADERS ALL OVER NORTHERN FRANCE HAD HEARD THE KEY WORDS

THEN FOR AN HOUR 300 FURTHER MESSAGES WERE BROADCAST . CODED TO INFORM THOSE IN THE KNOW THAT CERTAIN OPERATIONS WERE GREEN LIGHTED.

"OPERATION TORTUE" CALLED FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF BRIDGES AND HIGHWAYS. OPERATION BLEU  THE DISRUPTION OF THE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY SYSTEM AND OPERATION VILOLET , THE CUTTING OF TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH LINES.

TEAMS BEGAN TO TRAVEL SO THEY COULD INFORM ON GERMAN POSITIONS AND UNITS, OTHERS WERE SENT TO SABOTAGE  RAIL SYSTEMS. ..,

THE FACTS ABOUT THE MESSAGES THAT WERE BROADCAST TO BEGIN MISSIONS   HAD THEIR BEGINNING WITH THE FREE FRENCH FORCES LEADER  DE GAUL.

90 DAYS EARLIER IN MARCH OF 1944 DE GAUL HAD  UNIFIED OVER 200 INDIVIDUAL FRENCH RESISTANT GROUPS. HE AND HIS FREE FRENCH FORCES WITH ALLIED SUPPORT THEN PROVIDED NEARLY 90 DAYS OF SPECIAL TRAINING.

THE ALLIES, DURING THIS TIME, IN 1665 MISSIONS, DROPPED OVER 7 TONS OF ARMS AND SUPPLIES.

**************************

100,000 FRENCH RESISTANT FIGHTERS WERE NOW TRAINED AND HAD LEADERSHIP WITH PLANS. 100,000 WOULD  EQUALING EIGHT DIVISIONS. THE MEMBERS ERE OF VARIED AGE, FROM 16  TO 60, THEY WERE NOW WERE ARMED WITH 72000 STEN GUNS, 27000 PISTOLS, 17000 RIFLES, 3400 BREN GUNS, 600 BAZOOKAS, 160 MORTARS, AND MANY OTHER SUPPLIES INCLUDING RADIOS, EXPLOSIVES AND MINES.

THE FOLLOWING MORNING, AS THE ALLIES INVADED THE SLEEPY AND CALM NORMANDY FRANCE BEACHES,  RCP TEAMS [FREE FRENCH PARATROOPERS] PARACHUTED INTO VARIOUS AREAS TO MEET RESISTANT GROUPS TO CONDUCT SPECIFIC FIRE MISSIONS THAT WOULD KEEP 150,000 CRACK GERMAN TROOPS FROM AIDING THEIR FELLOW, EVENTUALLY RETREATING, GERMAN SOLDIERS ON THE BEACHES OF NORMANDY

THEY WRECKED BRIDGES, RAILROAD TRACKS AND ESTABLISHED ROAD BLOCKS COVERED BY MACHINE GUNS AND BAZOOKA TEAMS, HUGE SECTIONS OF THE DIJON RAIL SYSTEM LINES WERE SABOTAGED, FURTHER NEUTRALIZING THE MOST IMPORTANT GERMAN TRANSPORT ALONG THE EASTERN FRENCH RAIL HUB .

IN THE FIRST 24 HOURS 37 CUTS WOULD BE MADE AND 180 GERMAN TRAINS   DERAILED.

*********************************************8

IN FACT,  ON THE MORNING OF THE 6TH OF JUNE, AS THE AMERICANS, BRITISH AND CANADIANS WERE ASSAULTING 60 KILOMETERS OF NORMANDY BEACHES, THE GERMANS DISCOVERED CONFUSION AND DISRUPTION IN THEIR REAR.  AS THE TELEPHONES WENT DEAD GERMAN COMMANDERS TRIED USING THEIR RADIOS ONLY TO DISCOVER THEY WERE BEING JAMMED BY THE ALLIES.ELECTRICITY SUPPLIES FAILED CAUSING THE GERMANS TO HAVE TO USE CRITICAL FUEL SOURCES TO GENERATE POWER. AND, TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, THE LOGISTICS CHAIN WAS SO DAMAGED THAT  AMMUNITION --INCLUDING THE ALL IMPORTANT MORTAR SHELLS-- , BECAME SO SCARCE THAT FRONT LINE COMMANDERS HELD STOCK BACK .IN CASE SUPPLIES DID NOT RESUME, ACROSS THE FRONT LINES FIRE VISIBLY SLACKENED.

SEVERAL POWERFUL GERMAN FORMATIONS WERE CHOSEN TO RESPOND TO THE ALLIED ACTION. NORMALLY THEY WOULD HAVE MADE THE TRIP FAST ENOUGH TO CONFRONT THE ALLIES BEFORE THEY MADE A BREAK OUT,  INCLUDED IN THE 4 GERMAN DIVISIONS WAS THE INFAMOUS 2ND SS PANZER DIVISION, "DAS REICH" , WITH 20,000 HIGHLY TRAINED COMBAT VETERANS, FULLY ARMED  WITH THE LATEST GERMAN WEAPONS AND  240 TANKS, LIKE ALL OF THE GERMAN FORCES COUNTED ON TO HALT THE ABILITY OF THE ALLIES TO ESTABLISH BEACH HEADS , THEY WERE FORCED TO INCH THERE WAY TO THE COAST OF NORMANDY FRANCE.

NOW, AS GERMANS HAD DEMONSTRATED, IT WA NOT LONG BEFORE THEY PUNISHED ANYONE FRENCH FOR THEIR SITUATION.ANGERED AND FRUSTRATED BY THE CAUSALITIES AND DELAYS, CAUSED BY HIDDEN ENEMIES WHO MELTED INTO THE HILLS AND MOUNTAINS, ON JUNE 9TH 1944 , THE GERMANS DECIDED TO USE THE SAME BRUTAL TACTICS THEY USED O THE EASTERN FRONT IN THE TOWN OF TULLE FRANCE. SS TROOPERS HUNG 99 MEN WOMAN AND CHILDREN FROM BALCONIES OF HOUSES LINING THE MAIN STREET AND FORBID THE THOSE WHO SURVIVED TO CUT THE BODIES DOWN.

*************************************

THE NEXT DAY IN THE VILLAGE OF ORADOUR-SUR-GLANE, SS TROOPS SEPARATED THE MEN FROM WOMAN AND CHILDREN , SPLIT THEM INTO SEPARATE GROUPS, THEN MACHINE GUNNED THEM. THEY THEN HERDED THE WOMAN AND CHILDREN INTO A CHURCH, THROUGH IN A SATCHEL CHARGE AND GRENADES, ANY ONE WHO SURVIVED OR WAS ABLE TO ATTEMPT TO FLEE WERE MACHINE GUNNED.

642 FRENCH CITIZENS DIED. 190 MEN, 245 WOMAN AND 207 CHILDREN WERE BRUTALLY

IT WAS NOT UNTIL JUNE 23, TOO LATE TO ASSIST THEIR FELLOW GERMAN SOLDIERS,  THAT THE DIVISION LIMPED INTO NORMANDY.

THEY AND THE OTHER GERMAN RELIEF FORCES HAD ALSO BEEN ATTACKED, BY SPECIAL OP TROOPS WORKING WITH THE [FF] FREE FRENCH AND [FFI] FRENCH FORCES INTERIOR [ALL IN CAPACITY OF RESISTANCE FIGHTERS] . THESE ANGLO-FRENCH SOE TEAMS HAD THE ABILITY TO WORK WITH THE ALLIED ROCKET FIRING TYPHOONS ATTACK PLANES. . DAS REICH LOST 16 VEHICLES IN THE FIRST ATTACK. THE LOSS OF THE RAILS, BRIDGES AND MAJOR HIGHWAYS MEANT THE GERMANS WERE   LIMITED TO OFF ROADS AND HAD TO USE ENGINEERS TO FORD AREAS AND THUS WERE PRETTY MUCH BOTTLED UP AS THEY PROCEEDED TOWARDS THE PLACES OF DEFEAT.

HAD NOT THE FREE FRENCH FORCES TAKEN OVER THE RESISTANCE AS WELL AS COMMAND, CONTROL AND TRAINING, THESE GERMAN CRACK TROOPS WITH TANKS, ARTILLERY AND 100,000 [THERE WAS MORE THAN ONE DIVISION] HIGHLY COMBAT TRAINED PERSONAL , WOULD HAVE POSED A SOLID FORCE TO THE AMERICAN, BRITISH AND CANADIAN FORCES.

IT HAS BEEN ESTIMATED THAT THE BEACH-HEADS AND BREAK OUTS COULD HAVE FAILED HAD NOT THOSE MEN AND WOMAN NOT SABOTAGED, BROKE, BLEW UP AND FOUGHT TOE TO TOE , THE ALLIED BREAK OUT MAY HAVE FAILED.

AND YES, NOT ALL FIGHTERS STRUCK AND MELTED AWAY, 10,000 DECIDED TO FIGHT IT OUT. 10, 000 WENT UP AGAINST AN ENTIRE GERMAN DIVISION WITH 12,000 TROOPS, ON THE 10 JUNE, THE RESISTANT FIGHTERS WENT TOE TO TOE, INFLICTING 3000 GERMAN CASUALTIES, AN ADDITIONAL 8000 GERMAN TROOPS WITH HEAVY WEAPONS AND AIR SUPPORT WERE THROWN AGAINST THE RESISTANCE, THAT IS 8000 MORE THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN FIGHTING THE ALLIES. ON JUNE 21ST THE FRENCH, RUNNING SHORT OF AMMO,  WITHDREW INTO THE MOUNTAINS.

OTHER BATTLES WOULD RAGE FROM THE 6TH TO THE END OF JUNE. 24000 DIED AND THREE TIMES THAT AMOUNT HAD BEEN WOUNDED , WOUNDS OF EVERY TYPE CONCEIVABLE. THE FRENCH TOOK AS MANY CASUALTIES AS THE ALLIES IN THEIR FIRST 3 WEEKS.

YET, IT SEEMS THAT  THESE FRENCH HEROES SEEM NEVER TO SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY IN PRINT. HISTORIANS BRUSH THEM OFF AS SMALL PARTICIPATION. YET THE FREE FRENCH FORCES-- AND I AM INCLUDING RESISTANCE FIGHTERS AS FREE FRENCH-- , WHO FINALLY MADE THE DIFFERENCE WHEN IT WAS MOST, MADE SUCH AN IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTION TO THE WARS TURING POINT AND ALLOWED THOUSANDS TO LIVE TO SEE V-DAY!

OMAR BRADLY, IN HIS AUTOBIOGRAPHY, "SOLDIERS STORY", SAID THAT HE RELIED ON THE RESISTANCE, THAT THEY KEPT THE GERMAN REINFORCEMENTS FROM REACHING THE BEACHES. THAT THE ALLIES ABILITY TO HOLD, THEN BREAK OUT OF THE BEACHES WAS POSSIBLE DUE TO THE FREE FRENCH WORKS

AND, MORE IMPORTANTLY, GEN AND THEN U.S. PRESIDENT EISENHOWER SAID "THE FRENCH RESISTANCE WAS MAGNIFICENT, THE RAILROAD MEN NOT ONLY KEPT US INFORMED OF ALL MOVEMENTS BUT, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, THEY IMPEDED THE TRANSPORT OF GERMAN ARMIES , HOLDING THEM UP AS 36 HOURS , ENOUGH TO HELP TURN THE TIDE F BATTLE IN OUR FAVOR, PARTICULARLY WHEN WE WERE STILL INSIDE THE BEACHHEADS OF NORMANDY.

GEN AND THEN U.S. PRESIDENT EISENHOWER WOULD SAY IN HIS BOOK "CRUSADE FOR EUROPE" THAT THE FREE FRENCH FORCES AND THEIR CONTRIBUTION WERE "WORTH 15 DIVISIONS TO THE NORMANDY LANDINGS" .

***********************************************

FREE FRENCH WWII -1

France, along with the United Kingdom, was one of the first participants in World War II after declaring war on Germany following its invasion of Poland in 1939. After the Phony War from 1939 to 1940, the Germans conducted a brilliant campaign in the Low Countries and, in the Battle of France, managed to inflict defeat on the Allied forces. France formally surrendered to Germany and Italy—who invaded in late campaign—on 25 June 1940, and a collaborationist government, the French State, was established. On 18 June 1940, as an answer to Pétain's own June 17 appeal to "cease the fight" and to obey him on the French national radio, Charles de Gaulle gave a memorable speech to the French people on the English speaking London emitting BBC Radio, telling them that "France has lost a battle, but France has not lost the war" (the battle of France and World War II respectively). De Gaulle did not recognize the legitimacy of the Vichy government and went on to found the Free France (La France Libre) as the true government of France.

FREE FRENCH WWII -2

France and the United Kingdom were the first to declare war after Germany invaded Poland in 1939. In a lightening, successful campaign from the Low Countries to the  Battle of France, Germany inflicted defeat on the Allied forces [FRANCE-BRITIAN-BELGIUM].  France surrendered in June of 1940 and formed a collaborating government -- headed by  Pétain -- titled "The French State" and known as the Vichy government. Right after the French Government surrender,Pétain went on French National Radio to appeal to units still battling the Germans to obey him and "cease the fight". Within days of Pétain's speech, Charles de Gaulle, a French officer who would become a Free French Brigadier General and then French President after the war, with the backing of Winston Churchill, gave what would become a historical speech to the French people on BBC Radio. De Gaulle focused on bolstering French pride by informing his fellow citizens that "France has lost a battle, but France has not lost the war".

DE GAUL

Once again, with backing of Winston Churchill, he formed both the Free France Government (La France Libre) and the Free French Forces [NOTE: PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT AND STALIN DID NOT HAVE ANY CONFIDENCE IN NOR DID THEY BACK DE GAUL- YET DE GAULE WOULD TRIUMPH.]

The Free French forces included soldiers rescued from Dunkirk as well as units of the Foreign Legion. Free French Generals recruited additional Free French forces from the French Colonial Empire. They chose French Nationals & Natives from tropical African colonies. French Algeria and Morocco supplied men from their native populations. Senegal in French West Africa provided conscripts. Even Tahitians were recruited and served with distinction. With Allied success in the French Colonial strong-hold of North Africa, the Free French troop strength grew. De Gaulle rallied of the Army of Africa and pursued the fight against the Axis in multiple campaigns until the Free French Forces would have the opportunity to participate in the invasion of Italy and assist in the occupation of France and Germany. In fact, the battles fought during WWII in Italy included *120,000 French Colonial Forces that made history and were, in many cases, the major difference in the defeat of the Germans in Italy. 1/4 of the forces died or were injured, 2000 went missing in action.  .
