A France from the Past

No, President Chirac has not declared his allegiance to the Orcish Horde and demanded war; the above is the flag of President Petain- the Fromage speaking, backstabbing, collaborator who led Vichy France during World War II.

I have recently stumbled across an excellent French website which contains maps of Vichy France. The site contains detailed maps which show the divisions France was put under. While I knew Elsass-Lothringen was ceded back to Germany and the Italians took little pockets in the south; however, I did not know about forbidden zones for war refugees, zones for German-Belgian partial control in the north, and Italian expansion in 1942.

Historical maps have always been an interest of mine and this website does not disappoint.

Of course. He wants peace. All Gaullists want peace.
