Trying to find particulars on an incident I've heard about.
WWII, Americans landing at N. Africa meet Vichy French defenders. The French commander finds the highest ranking man he can, a young Lt, and tries to surrender to him. The Lt. says "I will not accept your surrender. If you love tyranny, fight us. If you love freedom, join us." Was this for real and accurate?
Where was the place? What was the date? Most of all, who was that Lt.? He had more presence of mind, political savvy, and balls than anyone else I've heard of. If it's true.

Hm, I don't think I've seen a quote like that before, and I can't find any similar ones online either.
