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!

In 1985, there were still tens of thousands of Soviet Red Army Veterans alive who took part in the Fortieth Commemoration of the Soviet Victory
The purpose of the inscription was to record this momentous occasion and the Red Army Units involved in achieving it! This was a natural process carried-out ‘on the ground’ by the military staff and personnel ‘in theatre’ and had nothing to do with the Central Committee in Moscow. Indeed, it was only later that the Red Banner of Victory would be ‘officially’ adopted and ‘Endorsed’ by the Communist Party following a debate and a vote!
