§826 Liberation of France and Germany through a significant decision of General Eisenhower (1940-1945): III-79.

III-79 (§826):

The fatal sempiternal order by chain
Shall come to turn by a significant order:
The chain of the port of Marseilles shall be broken:
The city taken, the enemy at the same time.

(L'ordre fatal sempiternel par chaisne,
Viendra tourner par ordre consequent:
Du port Phocen sera rompue la chaisne,
La cité prinse, l'ennemi quand & quand.)

NOTES: Conséquent (consequent): = Significant, important.

Quand & quand: « (En fonction d’adv.) en même temps (as a function of adverb: at the same time).»
(Petit Robert).

A significant order: « Before its launching, the invasion of Normandy looked a most hazardous venture. The enemy never managed to deliver any dangerous counterstroke before the Allied forces broke out from the bridgehead. The break-out was made in the way and at the place that Field-Marshal Montgomery had originally planned. The whole German position in France then quickly collapsed. Looking back, the course of invasion appears wonderfully easy and sure. But appearances are deceptive. It was an operation that eventually ‘went according to plan’, but not according to timetable. At the outset the margin between success and failure was narrow. The ultimate triumph has obscured the fact that the Allies were in great danger at the outset, and had a very narrow shave...» (Hart, 1971, p.543); « On D-Day precious hours were wasted in argument on the German side... Rommel had left his headquarters the day before on a trip to Germany. As the high wind and rough sea seemed to make invasion unlikely for the moment he had decided to combine a visit to Hitler with a visit to his home near Ulm for his wife’s birthday. The commander of the army in that part of Normandy was also away in Brittany. The commander of the panzer corps in reserve had gone on a visit to Belgium. Another key commander is said to have been away spending the night with a girl. Eisenhower’s decision to proceed with the landing despite the rough sea [a significant order] turned out greatly to the Allies’ advantage.» (Hart, id., p.549-550); « Normandy Landings 5–6 June 1944 On 4 June, U.S. Army General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander, made the decision to launch Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of Europe in World War II. Bad weather forced a one-day postponement, but a short period of acceptable weather meant 6 June was marked as D-Day. At the day’s end, the Allies held small but growing beachheads, while Allied airpower prevented German reserves from arriving. The successful Allied landing opened the door, into Europe, which led to the eventual defeat of Nazi Germany.» (Grant, 2011, p.864-865); « Monday, 5 June 0415 DBST: SAC weather briefing confirms improving weather pattern so Eisenhower orders full "Go" [a significant order] for NEPTUNE on 6 June. 1915 DBST: Eisenhower visits Fleming's weather shack. Stagg advises: "I hold to my forecast!"» (Bates, 2010, p.34).

The fatal sempiternal order by chain: « JUNE 22 ARMISTICE BETWEEN FRANCE AND GERMANY signed at Compiègne by Ge. Keitel (Germany) and Gen. Huntziger (France). Signing ceremony takes place in Marshal Foch’s old railway carriage, previously used for signature of armistice, Nov. 11, 1918. Armistice terms: Germany to occupy two-thirds of Metropolitan France including entire Channel and Atlantic coastlines; all major industrial areas; Alsace-Lorraine and Paris. French armed forces to be disarmed and demobilized, with exception of token defence forces; French Fleet to be disarmed and demobilized under German and Italian supervision; France to pay costs of German army of occupation. French PoWs to remain in Germany until signature of peace treaty. 3 French armies (400,000 men) surrender in Vosges pocket, W. of Maginot Line. Germans occupy Lorient.» (Argyle, 1980, p.35).

Shall come to turn by a significant order: « Eisenhower’s decision to proceed with the landing despite the rough sea turned out greatly to the Allies’ advantage [Shall come to turn by a significant order].» (Hart, id., p.550); « The successful Allied landing opened the door, into Europe, which led to the eventual defeat of Nazi Germany [Shall come to turn by a significant order].» (Grant, 2011, p.864-865).

The chain of the port of Marseilles shall be broken: « Le débarquement allié en Provence (été 1944) (The Allied landing in Provence, in summer, 1944).» (Hutin, 1972, p.179); « The landings of 151,000 Allied troops along the Côte d’Azur from Nice to Marseilles were practically unopposed, the major port of Marseilles was secured and the invasion provoked a rapid German withdrawal from central and south-western France [Shall come to turn].» (Beevor, 2010, p.445); « After the success of the Allied landing in Provence, the Germans give orders of general retreat [Shall come to turn] on 19 August 1944. The 1st French Army of General Lattre de Tassigny undertakes the mission of taking Toulon and Marseilles. These cities fall on 27 and on 28 August 1944 respectively. Montpellier is free on 29. Cities uprise of themselves in order to make the Allies come to help them and to prevent the Germans from effecting destructions. Cannes and Antibes are thus liberated on 24 August, Nice on 28. On the other hand, the Americans, soon rallied by the units of the 1st French Army, make use of the Napoleon route and the valley of the Rhône in pursuit of the Germans. Grenoble falls on 22 August, Valence on 23, Briançon on 26, Lyons on 3 September 1944. On 12 September, the Allied forces landed in Normandy and those landed in Provence perform their junction at Montbard...» (Kaspi, 1980, p.444).

The city taken, the enemy at the same time: The simultaneous fall of the city and the enemy leads us to the case of Berlin and Hitler in 1945: « APRIL 16 [1945] Russian FrontZHUKOV OPENS OFFENSIVE ON BERLIN. APRIL 21 BATTLE OF BERLIN. ZHUKOV’S TROOPS ENTER SUBURBS. Konev attacks North of Dresden. APRIL 22 Battle of Berlin: Russians capture Weissensee district. Hitler decides to remain in Berlin.

APRIL 30 Battle of Berlin: Hitler and Eva Braun commit suicide in Führerbunker beneath Reichs Chancellery, Berlin, at 3.30 pm. Cremated with burning petrol in Chancellery Garden.

General Jodle signs instrument of surrender at 2.41 am in schoolroom at Rheims.» (Argyle, 1980, p.183-185).
