Bonjour à tous

A force de trainer sur les forums anglophones, je me suis dit qu'un outil manque à la FTL pour éclaircir certains malentendus.

A savoir: un résumé de notre beau travail par années, 1940-1944. En anglais.

Au passage, ça servirait aussi en français mais enfin y a le site et les livres.

Pour le moment ça donne quelque chose comme ça.

Mon problème (je ne vais pas le cacher) c'est que hors aéro, la WWII n'est pas mon truc.

Et sur 1943 - 1944 les développements sont tels, je sèche.

Serait il possible d'avoir un bref résumé de 1943-44 ? juste les grands évènements sur les différents théatres, rien de trop détaillé.

Je me charge de traduire ça en anglais par la suite.

------------

FFO (France fights on) timeline, with main events only.

Book 1

June 1940 :
- 6 Reynaud misstress Hélène Des Portes is killed in a car driven by his close advisor Paul de Villelume.

Romania to give her Bessarabia and northern Bucovina

- Italian attack against France, a bit later than OTL

July 1940 :
- The German army reaches Bordeaux, Toulouse and Marseille at the end of
the month; the Italian army is still stuck in the Alps

September 1940 :

a German ally)

Tu m'a fait rire ...
Citation:
Militant quotidien de l'inhumanité
Des profits immédiats
Des faveurs des médias
Moi je suis riche, très riche
Je suis dans l'immobilier
Je sais faire des affaires
Y'en a qui peuvent payer
J'connais le tout Paris
Et puis le reste aussi
Mes connaissances uniques
Et leurs femmes que je
Fréquente évidemment
Les cordons de la bourse
Se relâchent pour moi
Il n'y a plus de secrets
Je suis le Roi des rois
Explosé l'audimat
Pulvérisée l'audience
Et qu'est-ce que vous croyez
C'est ma voie, c'est ma chance
J'adore les émissions à la télévision
Pas le temps d'regarder mais c'est moi qui les fais
On crache la nourriture à ces yeux affamés
Vous voyez qu'ils demandent
Nous les savons avides de notre pourriture
Mieux que d'la confiture à des cochons
Qui veut de moi
Et des miettes de mon cerveau
Qui veut entrer
Dans la toile de mon réseau
Vous savez qui je suis
Un homme pressé, un homme pressé, un homme pressé
Je suis un homme pressé, un homme pressé, un homme pressé
