10/31/97 Arrival of Robert PAXTON, 65, historian

At the start from German documents, then from French official archives. I've never worked on departmental archives of the Gironde, and so I have no notes on Papon. I'm neither a specialist on the Gironde during the occupation nor of Papon's administrative career. I want to talk about the Vichy administration and describe the context in which he took part in the internment and extermination of Jews from 1940 to 1944. I'll start with a first point which concerned the armistice. The duty of historians is to make a distinction between the constraints and the freedom of manoeuvre which existed even in an occupied country. France had an occupation strategy consisting of two parts. A new France was created: on July 17th, 1940 the first law was promulgated that one had to be the son of French and a French citizen to be a civil servant. The second part of Vichy policy was to play an important role in the new Europe. Me. HyperWar: World War II on the World Wide Web. Charles de Gaulle, le site de référence. Website.

At the end of the appendix are three diplomatic messages pertaining to the crisis which were translated on 8 and 30 December 1941. The Japanese naval messages are part of a total of 26,581 Japanese dispatches examined by U.S. Navy cryptanalysts. The Japanese messages were originally discovered in a sanitized but unpublished group of 188 messages contained in a document obtained from the Navy Archives at Crane, Indiana by the then NSA Historian, Mr. It is interesting to note that the work of decrypting and translating these messages occurred at the same time that the congressional investigation of the attack on Pearl Harbor was being conducted.

Biographie de dictateur - Francisco Franco (1892-1975)

Jeunesse et formation Franco naît à El Ferrol, un port de Galice. Véritable ghetto militaire, El Ferrol est un milieu fortement marqué par la tradition militaire et le dévouement à l'État, où la famille Franco vit depuis sept générations. Son père, Nicolás Franco Salgado-Araujo, est intendant général de la Marine. Coureur de jupons, il n'est pas à l'aise dans le milieu très conservateur de El Ferrol.

Douglas Valentine: Gold Warriors: the Plundering of Asia. Gold Warriors is more than a book about Japan’s "serious, sober and deliberate" plundering of Asia’s treasure from 1895 until 1945, and its collusion after the war with American officials to recover and use the loot as a secret political action slush fund to promote right wing regimes: Gold Warriors:America’s Secret Recovery of Yamashita’s Gold is a journey into the darkest recesses of history and the human soul.

Douglas Valentine: Gold Warriors: the Plundering of Asia

Authors Peggy and Sterling Seagrave not only unravel one of the greatest crimes and cover-ups ever, they reveal something new and startling about the depths of human depravity and barbarity, and the human capacity for deceit. The book begins in 1895 with a fascinating account of the grisly assassination of Korea’s Queen Min by terrorists posing as business agents of Japanese companies. The clever coup d’etat provides Japan with official deniability, and the confusion that follows provides the Japanese with a pretext for its military occupation and plundering of Korea.
