Alexander Werth: France 1940-1955 – Chapter Two – ‘The French Political Parties and the 1951 Election’ (Pages 514-543)

It was ONLY the French Communists who led a campaign of continuous struggle and sacrifice against the Nazi Germans – and which were willing to co-ordinate this ‘Resistance’ with all Allied efforts to bring-down and defeat Hitler’s Armies in Western Europe! Whilst many ordinary French citizens took-up arms in support of the occupying Nazi Germans (and ‘killed’ liberating British soldiers on D-Day) – the French Communists (and their ‘Internationalist’ Comrades) stood their ground and supported the arriving Allies! For their sacrifice and bravery – the US re-wrote history in its own corrupt image, and falsely presented the Communist Party as a swastika-wearing ogre that did everything in its power to assist Hitler! The truth, as usual, was much different, as it was only the Communist Party that could be relied upon to ‘fight’ and ‘oppose’ fascism, Nazism and all forms of imperialism! With the US, UK and EU now openly supporting the (illegal) Neo-Nazi government of ‘Maidan’ Ukraine – it is yet again the ‘Communist Party’ which is providing a crucial level of support to the Russian efforts of ‘de-Nazifying’ Donbass!

How the USSR Tried to Join NATO! (18.5.2022)

When applying for membership in NATO, the new Soviet leadership counted not least on the softening of the international situation after the death of Joseph Stalin. However, the leader of the peoples himself tried, if not to make friends with the West, then at least to show such a desire. Back in early 1949, USSR Foreign Minister Andrei Vyshinsky, through the mediation of the British Communist Party, sent a note to London with a proposal to discuss Moscow’s participation in the organization – the ideological predecessor of NATO – the ‘Western European Union’ (which would morph into the ‘European Union’ which today supports Neo-Nazism in the Ukraine). The negative answer allowed Stalin to describe this bloc as “undermining the UN “.

USSR: Red Army Cavalry 1938 Model ‘Carbine’ (17.5.2022) 

The concept of the ‘carbine’ may well have originated during the late 1500s in France and referred to the weapon these ‘Light’ Cavalrymen used to carry. In this instance, this may well have been a ‘slang’ term used in the French language which referred to mounted archers from Flanders who were considered deadly shots and sure bringers of ‘death’! (The association is unclear but may refer to an assumed connection between the ‘carrion beetle’ and the ‘plague’, etc). Whatever the origin, a ‘carbine’ appears to refer to a ‘short’ and highly effective weapon carried when sat in the saddle and used when riding the horse whether into or out of battle. The 1938 ‘Carbine’ Model measured just 1020 mm (or 3.4 feet) long (minus a bayonet) – and fired a round measuring 7.62 mm! The ‘Carbine’ Model 1938 was sighted to fire up to 1000 meters! The Izhevsk Machine-Manufacturing Plant was the only place equipped for producing this ‘Carbine’ between 1941-1942 – during the height of the ‘Great Patriotic war’ – when the workers of this factory produced over 1,106,510 which were sent immediately for frontline service!
