Fun Stuff

From Ike: Countdown to D-Day (2004) (TV)
General Charles DeGaulle: You say local administrations will stay in place?
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower: For stability, General.
General Charles DeGaulle: Only I shall decide what to do with Vichy officials. No, no, it is all quite impossible. I will never accept that you can speak for all of the allies.
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower: The British have, the Canadians, the Australians, the exiled Dutch and Poles. Roosevelt and Churchill have agreed. Come to think of it, you're the only exception.
General Charles DeGaulle: You will not treat us like Italy. We are not German allies.
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower: In fact the Vichy government is precisely that, General. But... we will liberate France and treat her as an ally nonetheless. All I ask is that you speak on the radio after my address and call on your people to aid us in their liberation.
