Diary July 11, 1940

'Death for the English'
‘Death for the English’, anti-British sentiment in France.
Diary for Thursday, July 11, 1940:


Vichy France: President Lebrun resigns; Petain proclaims himself ‘Head of the French State’, abolishes Republican Constitution of 1875, and dismisses Senate and Chamber of Deputies.

Home Fronts

Britain: Beaverbrook Minister of Aircraft Production, appeals for aluminum pots and pans, ‘to build Spitfires‘ (vast quantities are collected but the value of the campaign is negligible).
