Needs more detail[edit]

Fascinating part of history, hope somebody can add detail to the WWI and WWII sections.-- (talk) 15:53, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

WW II & BBC article[edit]

A paragraph has been added from a BBC article [1], however:

  • The BBC claims 17,000 senegalese tirailleurs "lay dead by the time France fell in June 1940", not for the whole of WWII, not for the free french forces, the BBC is anyway, incorrect, as that's the number of casualties rather than of the dead (Collection « Mémoire et Citoyenneté » #10 p.7).
  • The liberation of Paris was not a "parade".

Not much to salvage, so I reverted. Equendil Talk 04:28, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
