From the Paper:

"The relationship between France and the United States has historically been marked by tension and misunderstanding. This is all the more remarkable given the long history of alliance between the two nations and their shared passion for liberty and all its trappings. Much of the modern tension between the two nations can be attributed to the traumatic events of World War II. Proud France was conquered and occupied by Nazi Germany and many French people collaborated with the Nazi regime."
