Is it possible that General Huntziger was a Traitor?


#1

Hello WW2 team,

I read something on a forum about how a contributor thought Huntziger’s inexplicable actions during the Battle of France were to do with his wishing for the third republic to fall by any means. They cited as evidence the fact that his press officer was involved in action francaise. It wasn’t written in the best English, and it was on a forum after all, so I was wondering what you guys think of all this? Is it possible that General Huntziger was a Traitor?

Well, he obviously was a traitor when he served in the Vichy government, but during the Battle of France, the evidence is far too circumstantial to say he’s a traitor.
