11 Novembre 1943
En 1914 Guillaume II crut battre la France en 4 semaines. Après 4 ans d'une longue et terrible lutte, LE 11 NOVEMBRE 1918, l'Allemagne vaincue déposait les armes.
VINGT-CINQ ANS APRÈS
En Juin 1940 Hitler a cru, lui aussi battu la France. Son emblème à croix gammée flotte sur Paris. Grâce à une clique de politiciens vendus: PETAIN, LAVAL, DE BRINON ... , il prépare au nom de la collaboration européenne l'asservissement de la France.
HITLER S'EST TROMPÉ: la France n'est pas vaincue. Soldats de Bir-Hakeim, soldats de Leclerc, soldats de Giraud, marins de Toulon, aviateurs des escadrilles Normandie, Lorraine, Alsace, patriotes Corses, soldats sans uniforme des Francs-Tireurs et Partisans du Front National, des groupes Francs de l'armée secrète.
Vous en êtes la preuve la plus formelle.
HITLER S'EST TROMPÉ: C'est l'Allemagne qui sera vaincue. Sous les coups de l'héroïque armée rouge, sous les coups des bombardements incessants de la R.A.F., sous les coup des vaillants combattants de la Résistance, le boche baisse la tête. Demain il sera à genoux.
11 Novembre 1918! ont les a eu! 11 Novembre 1943! on les aura!
VIVE LA FRANCE.
[French Republic. Photo-litho reproduction National Front Fighting for the Independence of France. Department of Saône-et-Loire. 11 November 1943. In 1914 Kaiser Wilhelm II thought he could beat France in 4 weeks. After 4 years of a long and terrible struggle, on 11 November 1918, Germany was defeated and laid down its arms.Twenty-five years later, in June 1940 Hitler too thought he had beaten France. His swastika emblem floats over Paris. Thanks to a clique of venal politicians: Pétain, Laval, De Brinon ... , in the name of European collaboration he is preparing for the enslavement of France. Hitler's got it wrong: France is not defeated. Soldiers of Bir-Hakeim, soldiers of Leclerc, soldiers of Giraud, sailors of Toulon, airmen of the Normandy, Lorraine and Alsace squadrons, Corsican patriots, soldiers without uniform in the Guerrillas and Partisans of the National Front, in the commando groups of the secret army - you are the most formal proof of this. Hitler's got it wrong: it's Germany that will be defeated. Under the blows inflicted by the heroic Red Army, under the blows inflicted by the ceaseless bombardments of the R.A.F., under the blows inflicted by the brave combatants of the Resistance, Jerry is hanging his head. Tomorrow he'll be on his knees. 11 November 1918! We got them! 11 November 1943! We'll get them! Long live France.]
