The first Allied soldiers arriving to Paris were the Spanish republicans of the La Nueve (9th in spanish) company, commanded by Lieutenant Amado Granell, fighting for democracy in Europe hoping to freedom Their homeland from fascist hands. The french press and historians hided this fact; furthermore, The allied betrayed them... Franco nazi-allied and criminal dictator became US Allied during 40 years. Shame for all who forgot Spanish blood poored in french land and Nazi camps
