FRENCH LANGAUGE BOOK: The legendary car designed by André Citroën was to experience, because of the events which plunged the world into war five years later, an astonishingly rich military career. In September 1939, thousands of them joined our armies during the strange war, then experienced the horrors of disaster. In June 1940, the Traction changed camp, despite itself. And the Germans, who are very fond of it, will take it everywhere in Europe, from the Arctic Circle to distant Russia. But, at the end of 1942, the Traction appeared again under our flags, this time successfully engaged in the campaign in Tunisia, with strange armoured versions. Then it is the liberation of France, the epic of the maquis, the white stars and the three letters FFI which bloom on the bodywork. The beauty of Javel then became one of the symbols of reborn France before serving for fifteen years still under the flags.
