Description

The text of the appeal reads in French: "To all Frenchmen. France has lost a battle! But France has not lost the war! A makeshift government may have capitulated, giving way to panic, forgetting honour, delivering their country into bondage. Yet nothing is lost! Nothing is lost, because this war is a world war. In the free universe, immense forces have not yet swung into operation. Some day these forces will crush the enemy. On that day, France must be present at the victory. She will then regain her liberty and her greatness. Such is my goal, my only goal! That is why I urge all Frenchmen, wherever they may be, to unite with me in action, in sacrifice and in hope. Our country is in mortal danger. Let us all fight to save her. Long live France! General de Gaulle Headquarters, 4, Carlton Gardens, London, S.W.1.
