NotesItalo-German Occupation of "Unoccupied France" ... Hitler-Laval talks in Munich... Nov 11 On the 24th anniversary of the ending of the first World War, German forces crossed the delineation line and proceeded to the occupation of what was formerly the Unoccupied Zone of France. Italian forces also advanced into Unoccupied France. At 2 a.m. Vichy officials stated that Laval was in Germany attending a "critical conference". ... At 2 p.m. Laval returned to Vichy from Germany and had two conferences with the Marshal [Petain] after which the Cabinet met. At 5.30 p.m. the Vichy news agency stated that "contrary to reports circulating abroad" the French fleet was still at Toulon. At 8 p.m. it was officially announced in Vichy that Laval had arrived in Munich on Nov. 9 where he had several interviews with Hitler (at one of which Ribbentrop and Ciano were present), that as Laval left Munich he received a copy of Hitler's letter to Marshal Petain and that "certain events which took place during the night" had determined the decision of the German High Command. ...
