    That was the “Free French” run by DeGaulle from Britain. France fought Germany at the very onset of WWII but was quickly defeated. For the rest of the war France was occupied by Germany and French military that answered to a puppet government set up by Germany.

    Robin , funny thing about the Japanese in WW2 , when Stalin attacked manchuria as he promised the western allies , the japanese were expecting more of the same from the Russians as they did on the battlefield with the Americans ……………didnt work out that way , to their horror , they found that the Russians behaved MUCH differently than the Americans , Stalin shipped all those angry battle hardened soldats , that went through the horrible street fighting in Stalingrad and Berlin to the far east . The japanese soon realized that they were fighting an enemy just as brutal and ruthless as they are ………..they didnt know how to handle that . I read an account from an American POW , that was liberated by the Russians in China , he said that the russians gave him a truck to go into a chinese town and take whatever he wanted to bring back to the liberated prisoners . While he was in town , he saw a group of japanese POWs being marched to the train station by the Russians , to unload freight …….after they were done , the Russians marched them behind a building and shot them . Then marched back up the hill for another batch of Japanese . That story actually warms my heart ……………but thats neither here nor there .
