So Ad hominems aside, you have nothing to back this patriotic revisionism.
Should anyone be surprised?

So what exactly was done by Monseiur De Gaulle for his Polish medal?
Did he save the day too?

In France De Gaulle joined the Polish 5th regiment of Sille-le-Guillaume, and with his regiment arrived to Poland. From April 1919 to January 1921 he was in Kutno as an instructor and member of the French military mission under the command of General Maxime Weygand, as well as in the old school of the Imperial Guard in Rembertów, where he taught the theory of tactics. In July and August 1920 he was drafted into the Polish combat unit and promoted to the rank of major. For his attitude in military operations on July 29 and 13 and 16 August 1920, he was awarded the Silver Cross of the Order of Virtuti Militari. In 1921, he was offered a permanent assignment, however he refused and returned to France.

Thanks; do you actually know what exactly did "his attitude in military operations on July 29 and 13 and 16 August 1920" actually mean?

Although I do not know the details of this event, it usually means that the person rewarded showed his quality and competence, so it must be something along those lines.

Yup, I'm already aware of such obviousness; as I'm not aware of the details either, that's exactly why I explicitly asked about them.

Any other more specific guesses?

De Gaulle recived Virtuti Militari for (from official order) :

"..commendant de Gaulle during military operations on July 29 and 13 and 16 August 1920, has fully assessed the situation, was not afraid of reaching out to the enemy, carefully using the information of military intelligence, he turned out to be a precious collaborator of commander-in-chief and showed officers virtues to the fullest extent"


not sure if I have translaterd it well enough...

=sylla1;1283528]To be honest, I was hoping of something more than just Wiki from any learned fan; amazing as it may sound, I had already thought of reviewing it since some time ago.
Just to expose your hypocrisy regarding use of Wiki as a source, I will use thread “ Why Rommel did not conquered Tobruk?”

Then, for any reason, exactly the same Italian army (but with the significant addition of more than 115,000 Italian soldiers already killed or captured by O'Connor) have been utterly unable to stop the same British soldiers in a far better fortified line, just some weeks ago; here's my source

I have yet to see the slightest objective evidence that either Mr Lyman, the indeed utterly obscure col. Von dem Borne mentioned above (can you at least quote his first name?; he seems to have not even a single wiki reference) or you may have any better knowledge on desert warfare than Herr Rommel.
In fact, almost all your posts are based on Wiki, however you do not quote this source openly. I remember the episode from above thread that you had to check Google what the “long Range Desert Patrol” was. But you have posed as an expert in desert warfare. Now you are (with help of Wiki articles) expert on Battle of France
