BLITZKRIEG

`Monsieur Paul Reynaud, Premier of France, is about to speak to you ...'
`Here we go,' said the man next to me, `another catastrophe!'
And, in fact, Reynaud sorrowfully announced the capitulation of the Belgian Army. I thought: `It's the end.'
Returning to Paris, I went to report to Colonel Schiffer and found him with Captain Max Hermant of Weygand's General Staff.
`Why don't you go to London,' the latter said to me, `and explain our situation to the English people?' -
`I am under the orders of General Headquarters. I have already promised, at the request of our ambassador, to give a talk in London on the 25th of June; all that's necessary is to send me a little sooner.'
`I will talk to Vincennes about it,' he said.
On the 3rd of June Paris was bombed by three hundred German aeroplanes. Despite the large number of dead and wounded this raid made little impression. On the 5th of June the second German offensive began against our new lines along the Somme and the Aisne. At first the news seemed fairly good. At the Ministry of Information it was said that `the line was holding', that the air gunners were doing wonders against the tanks and that `the Li ftivaf~'e seemed out of breath'. But on the evening of the 8th the communique was execrable. There began to be talk of Forgesles-Eaux, of the region around Rouen. Would we have to submit to the Germans' entrance into Paris? And would the city be defended? There were already a number of signs indicating that the Government was thinking of withdrawing. In front of the Ministry of the Navy and in the churchyard of the Ministry of War trucks were being loaded with the archives.
`The heavy elements are being evacuated,' was the non-committal explanation at the offices.
On Sunday the 9th Colonel Schiffer told me that Captain Hermant had telephoned from General Headquarters that I was to leave immediately for London. He gave me an order, with which I was to secure a place in an English military plane. I went to see the British Air Attache and he said to me:
`Be at the Buc Aerodrome to-morrow at noon.'
Would it still be possible at noon on the Ioth of June to get to Buc? I began to doubt it. Already it was said that German motorized divisions had reached Vernon, Mantes ... Tanks had been seen at Isle-Adam. That
