Post Re: About the French......
In Europe in the last 1/4 of the 19th century the nations began to polerize

Austria... Germany.... Italy ....on one side began to form a power block .. the Triple Alliance

and in response Britain, France and Russia formed the Triple Entente

Edward the Prince of Wales became very pro French and anti German and the arrogant Kaiser.
The Entente Cordiale was signed
Europe was polerized

The Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated by a young Serbian guy
this lit the fuse that set off the First World War.

The two sides of Europe began an awesome war with death and destruction on
a scale never seen before..............
......... strangely Italy changed sides at the very last minute and fought on the side of the allies !
(that made them very popular in Germany ! )
