  1. We now get to some fascinating stuff that is less known outside of France. The events in 1934 will not create a new Fascist state, but they will have deep impact on how France deals with WW2. The February crisis influences military policy, the civilian response, and the way both right wing and left wing political parties deal with the German invasion and occupation. In the next couple of weeks we will come out with a War Against Humanity episode on the WW2 channel about the beginning of French collaboration and resistance – this episode provides essential background to how that plays out in 1940.

    STAY CIVIL AND POLITE we will delete any comments with personal insults, or attacks.
    AVOID PARTISAN POLITICS AS FAR AS YOU CAN we reserve the right to cut off vitriolic debates.
    HATE SPEECH IN ANY DIRECTION will lead to a ban.
    RACISM, XENOPHOBIA, OR SLAMMING OF MINORITIES will lead to an immediate ban.

  2. "Many of then men put in charge of defending the Third Republic despised it."
    We have that same problem in America. Many politicians elected to lead America despise it.
    I wish I had known of the internal strife France had between the wars. It explains so much of their behaviour during and after the war.

  3. Interesting. The future leader of the main collaborationniste party, Parti Populaire Français, Jaques Doriot, was leading the Communist fight back against the right wing mob.

  4. A great overview! I came to see how well you covered the area of interwar history I know well before checking out the videos on countries I don't know so well (still waiting for a definitive Youtube primer on Albanian King Zog, the insane last absolute monarch of Europe).

    One little tiny correction is that Chiappe was a Corsican, and thus his name was pronounced 'Kyapp' 'or 'Kyappa' rather than the Parisian way 'Shyapp'. But if that's the biggeat nitpicking I have, you've done a great job!

  5. A bit late, but I realised I never commented on this episode where I again was the Patreon supporter of the week. Thanks Indy, I also like my name
