While Britain bankrolled resistance movements across Europe during the war, Churchill refused to fund those connected with the future French President
A note from Churchill to SOE suggested that de Gaulle would use the money for his own political ends: "It is imperative to prevent General de Gaulle from having the slightest control over money from the British Exchequer," he wrote in a document dated June 19, 1943. Yesterday’s release of papers also demonstrates the expertise of the SOE forgers who ensured that its agents could continue to operate undetected.
Among the papers was a faked passport for Adolf Hitler, stamped on the outside with a large ’J’ by its forgers to denote that he was Jewish, and inside with a stamp on behalf of the Department of Migration for the Government of Palestine.
This is taken from Pycho Mikes link on SOE plots during the war.
Its incredible. Why did Churchill and Roosevelt distrust De Gaulle.
