    "Our country is ourselves. It is our villages, our altars, our graves, all that our fathers loved before us. Our country is our Faith, our land, our King. . . But their country — what is it? Do you understand? Do you? . . . They have it in their brains; we have it under our feet. . ." - François-Athanase Charette

    Compared to the invasion of Norway 1940, Dieppe 1942 the or the invasion of Gallipoli 1915, three major Churchillian disasters, this disaster one is comparable small. It just upset the French and drove Vichy France into the German camp.

    Here is a French news report about it.
