Monarchy and socialism - 42 June 16, 1940 in Bordeaux was formed last 'constitutional government of the Third Republic', authorized to end the war. Authorized 'by the people of France', of course, do not think bad. Reynaud suggested as his successor, Marshal Petain, and this nomination did not meet anyone's objections.

Today, it seems ridiculous, but then this whole farce is presented in all seriousness.
