didn't know about that.
I once had a discussion with a Frenchy, Pied-Noir and Vichy nostalgic. He would swear that De Gaulle had something to do with all this, while it's definitely clear that Churchill did not warn him about it, just like he did not warn him about Operation Torch. The FFL couldn't get any more volunteers after that.
I can tell you that the French haven't forgotten about it, at least those who have a little bit of historical knowledge.

What makes me wild is that many people in the West still believe that the Chetniks were collaborationists, Communist propaganda. I once had a discussion with two French leftist who were sure of that. At that time I was rather young and I did not have a lot of sources to back up my claims (only Orwell's preface for his Animal Farm which is available on the net) but now I've read a book about his rehabilitation trial and am glad that I was perfectly right.
Those guy would call me a Neo-Nazi/Fascist/Vichyist. It's just crazy !
