I became Stalin chapter 209
“Damn, what is this… .”
“Isn’t the big plan leaked?”
Leclerc sharpened it. suffered There are informants.
He looked at the generals, who were frantic like hens who were startled with their cold eyes. Even if I pretended to be so embarrassed right now, I didn’t know there was a traitor among me.
“Aren’t you supposed to stop doing business?”
“As long as it happened… .”
The inside of the conference room became quiet as if cold water had been poured. The generals each dreamed and swallowed their saliva, looking at Leclerc, who at some point had become the leader of the ‘military revolution’.
“If information about this event has leaked out, do you think you will be safe by canceling the plan now? What do you think you would want the most if the informant sold us over for my life and for my bounty? Send us to the guillotine and shut our mouths forever!”
It was so quiet that I couldn’t even hear my breath except the sound of someone hiccuping in surprise. Leclerc smashed the table.
“We have only two options! Guillotine or Elysee Palace? Call your troops right now. If they’ve noticed, there’s only one quick action!”
“Oh, I see!”
shudder. Leclerc pulled out his pistol like a lightning bolt, aimed at the hesitant general, and uttered threats through his clenched lips.
“However? Will you come and leave now? You might be the informant.”
“Oh, no! I am in the military revolution… hey profit!”
Two large soldiers, who had been quietly guarding both sides of the door until then, grabbed the general’s arms. Frozen in front of the pistol’s muzzle, he was gently dragged out.
“Listen well. win or die. The die has already been cast.”

“uh? Did you hear that our convoy is arriving? Respond! Respond!”
On the outskirts of Paris, the control tower of Orly Airfield was sending only radios without answer.
It was clear that it was a friendly transport plane, but transport planes that had no idea what they were coming in for started appearing one by one in the sky above the airport.
“Ah… Land it? Okay. Nemil, Jeenjang… .”
Of course, the question was quickly resolved. The management headquarters that manages the airfield contacted him directly. It’s for covert operations, so let me land!
No matter what kind of secret operation he was doing, he began to guide the transport planes one by one while muttering.
The empty runway began to fill up with arriving transport aircraft one by one.
“Eh… ? What is that?”
And from the transport planes, fully armed soldiers began to disembark. The soldiers in the Foreign Legion’s white hats (Kefy Blanc) and green berets each held their rifles firmly and headed out of the airport with a modest pace.
The controller, who sensed that something was unusual, was at a loss as to who to report to and whom to contact, but someone kicked the door of the control room and entered.
“Well, thank you. Now we will take over the control tower.”
The colonial garrison, which had entered the French mainland through the Orly airfield in the south of Paris, began to march towards Paris.
Then, the 1st Regiment of the 2nd Cavalry Division, the main unit of the rebel forces, advanced into the city of Paris with an American M4 Sherman tank donated to the newly formed French Army.
Most soldiers simply obey orders. In addition, the rebel leaders advertised themselves to the soldiers.
“In Paris, the Communists launched a pro-government coup and captured the elements of Parliament and the Cabinet! The Soviet Union is reaching out to France with its dark red hands! Rise up, Grand Army!”
“Foreign forces are invading our sovereignty and trying to take over our colonies. Soldiers! Shall we leave it to you?”
The truth is, it didn’t matter what the colony was, and it didn’t make any difference to the foreigners or the young soldiers of the Foreign Legion.
However, right-wing politicians reacted briskly that France was no longer a great power and could no longer influence world affairs. Will it be a long term between the US and the USSR? They vomited blood and rejected such a future.
“Go ahead! Advance! Crush the rebels!”
“Long live France! Long live freedom!”
Citizens screamed and disappeared to both sides of the street when they saw an unseen streetcar rumbled down the road. Unable to know what they were aiming for, and unable to stop what they were aiming for, the policemen had to keep their eyes open and watch the tank march towards Paris.
It was only when they received the handouts they were advancing and sowing that people could understand for what purpose they had turned the muzzle to the capital.
“It’s a coup!”
* * *
“Sir, this is an urgent report! Anti-rebel forces are advancing into Paris!”
“That’s right, it’s faster than expected.”
Prime Minister Torres dabbed as he looked at the bewildered face of the young secretary who rushed in and delivered the urgent news. The suppression force would not have been organized yet.
“A coup cannot succeed unless the orthodox government is suppressed. Troops loyal to us will annihilate them. We, we… .”
Survive and wait for salvation. If you don’t surrender in fear, it’s a fight you can win.
But France will no longer be great.
Torres was also French, so he wanted his country to be great. Although not a second power and not the greatest power in continental Europe, he wanted to unite the French-speaking countries of the former colonies to form a kind of loose federation.
His plan was to exert influence in the “third world” that Stalin claimed and to serve as the second-in-command in the socialist bloc, but this coup d’état ruined his plan.
It was not at all desired for France to become a colonialist imperialist country again, but it was also not pleasant for France to become a long-term end of the great Soviet state.
“Where did it go wrong… .”
When you lost to Germany in 6 weeks? When Paris was liberated in line with the defeat of Germany under the orders of the Kremlin rather than self-armed struggle?
Nazi Germany was defeated by the Soviet Union while attacking the country with the momentum to devour the whole world. Everything that Germany had gained fell into the hands of the Soviet Union.
And those nuclear weapons. The weapon that destroyed Berlin and crushed Japan. Without it, other countries would never have been able to call themselves a ‘powerful country’. The Soviet Union shared nuclear weapons only with the United States and refused to share its status as a great power.
Even in the newly created ‘United Nations’, France will never have a permanent seat as a member of the Federation.
Feeling helpless, he buried himself in the chair.

“Comrades, citizens! Reaction rebels are coming to overthrow our government we have established!”
“Armed! Armed! Comrades!”
Leaders of the trade unions and the Communist Party, who were already aware of the situation, immediately summoned their members. Armaments were meager, with outdated rifles and improvised homemade explosives, but they were burning with a will to defend the government of their own hand.
“Let’s put up a barricade! Let’s put up a barricade to prevent tanks from advancing!”
Paris, the city of rebellion, was accustomed to fighting like this.
From the French Revolution to the 18th Brumaire coup, the July Revolution, the 1848 Revolution, the Paris Commune, and the Christmas Uprising of the Resistance! Trained in the battle between the long revolution and counterrevolution, the Parisians quickly built a barrier to block the tanks.
And the flag of France, the tricolor, flew over it.
“Aren’t we here to suppress the rebellion?”
The junior officers and soldiers were shaken when they saw it. Those who marched after hearing that the regime was in collapse due to an illegal coup d’état were bewildered when citizens voluntarily set up barricades to block the advance.
“Captain! The soldiers are refusing to fire! How the hell are things going now?”
“Neither do I. perhaps… .”
“We cannot aim our guns at citizens! If we were involved in an illegal rebellion… .”
The company commander threatened the second lieutenant to discuss the rebellion, but he himself was seriously embarrassed.
Some of the ‘high-profile’ classmates said that if they play a role in this big event, they will be on the road to success in the future.
Get a high-speed promotion from the Chief of Staff, which will be transformed into new patriotic soldiers, or lead the most elite combat units and set up a brilliant martial art!
Not all officers who participated in the coup d’état dreamed of becoming a career leader, and there were some who were swept away by the trend like a company commander, but that didn’t mean they disliked immigration.
But what is this? The citizens were fiercely pointing their guns and growling as if they were going to fire at any moment.
That shabby barricade would collapse with a few shots from tank guns, but the company commander did not have the confidence to take responsibility after that. A soldier who protects the country sharpens tank guns on civilians?
It was possible because of the high-ranking revolutionary government behind him that the famous Napoleon shot and shredded counter-revolutionary protesters during the revolution. As a political soldier, Napoleon was able to advance, but the company commander did not consider himself a genius second to that of Napoleon.
“… Let’s go to the company next door for a while.”
There are probably quite a few captains in a similar mess. The second lieutenant saluted with a questionable expression and looked at the back of the company commander.
But even the company commander knew what the second lieutenant was thinking.
“What are you going to do?”
His friend, who was a classmate and the company commander of the company next to him, asked as soon as he put his face to it. My friend also seemed to be embarrassed.
In fact, they weren’t all that different. I took part in the coup because I was afraid that I could dream of a better future than now, or that someone next to me would do it, or if I did not participate, I was afraid of the repercussions. Now that the short sweet dream was about to explode, I was afraid.
“Train. If you explain the situation and join the government, I will follow. You saw the atmosphere now!”
Some of them were more cunning and opportunistic than others.
The company commander was now trying to seduce a friend. Anyway, the coup’s failure seemed obvious. Don’t get caught up in a frivolous rebellion by dipping your feet into a rebellion that will fail for nothing, and let’s switch guns to the government army! At the very least, it seemed that his subordinates would not aim their guns at the back of the head.
“That… Can I do it?”
“Fuck! Is this the beginning of this rebellion in the first place? Should the army to defend the country turn the gun to the government of the citizens? It’s a colony and it’s a scourge, and you don’t have to obey the law!
When the indecisive friend hesitated, the company commander turned around in exaggerated anger.
That friend has always been like that. When the situation seems bad, I get scared by myself and do nothing, then follow others.
Still, it was important to command one company of tanks.
“Okay! Me and I will follow.”
While calling for joy inside, the company commander just nodded and came out.
Taking a deep breath, he called out to the soldiers in the loudest and most dignified voice he thought.
“Soldiers! French patriotic soldiers! Refuse the illegal coup!!!”
