hello, once again sorry for my english, i'm french :)

firstly a little bit of history :D

The lieutenant commander Philippe Kieffer was born in Haiti in a French family of Alsatian origin. Reserve officer interprets and of figure of the national Navy, on the Courbet battleship, it takes part in the battle of Dunkerque before answering the call of General de Gaulle and joining the free French naval Forces. Very impressed by the methods and successes of the British commandos, it wishes to constitute a French unit of this type. As of spring 1942, it gathers under its orders a score of volunteers in the surroundings of Portsmouth. These men will form Troop 1 of the French green Berets. Promoted lieutenant, then lieutenant commander the day before the unloading, the commander Kieffer unloads in Normandy with the head of his men of the 1st battalion of marine fusiliers commandos, and, is twice wounded as of the first hours of the engagements, June 6.

in my pack, I modified all the things except the weapons (because the commando kieffer exclusively used British weapons and US weapons)
