African finale >>>
The Germans had set their foot on the African continent courtesy not only to the Italians. It is proper to mention that the French also helped the enemy to entrench in that part of the world. France's surrender in 1940 practically gave to the Axis powers vast areas of the French North Africa, French West Africa, and French Equatorial Africa. With time the leader of the Free French, General Charles de Gaulle, managed to subordinate most of the territories of the French possessions in the West and Equatorial Africa, but the rĂ©gime in Vichy still held the French North Africa - Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia.
