NotesNovember 20: ... Laval, in a broadcast from Vichy, announced his intention to "collaborate" with Germany as follows: " ... We are acting together with Germany in full independence. Since she entered the war against the United States, Germany has never asked anything of France. I am certain that Germany will be victorious. A German defeat would mean Communism everywhere in Europe. I must also recall England's responsibility for our misfortunes and the treason of Frenchmen against their country. It is our colonies which de Gaulle has seized with the aid of the British... I love my country. Bad fortune stimulates me, it does not make me despondent. I want her to emerge great and strong from the storm... [Keesing's Contemporary Archives p.5463]
