The Allies And Their Treatment Of The Liberated
In Response To: (Message Deleted by Poster) ()

Actually, this is a caricature on the Allies, not on the French ;-)

The "trans-Rhenanians" (Überrheiner), former Frech citizens on the left bank of the Rhine, are liberated (1), enjoy the administration of a provisional government with three departments (2-4, all three responsible for raising taxes, it seems), they have to furnish free transport (Vorspann) to the allied troops (5) and a commission is distributing them at high prices amongst the victors (6).

An edifying story (erbauliche Geschichte) indeed ...
