The French mechanized units fought valiantly and oftentimes successfully against overwhelming odds, as they attempted to stave off the German sweep across the Lowlands and northern France. Such a... More > unit was the Groupe Franc of which Lt. Gerard was second in command. In numerous engagements his Groupe repulsed and held back the advancing Germans while the body of the French Army retreated from one position to another, never making the final stand which France and the whole world (including the enemy) awaited.

The dogged, indomitable, persistently intelligent leadership of the captain commanding the Groupe stands forth as a splendid example of initiative and endurance for all leaders of fighting men.
