What I will be reading during my vacation

After the Second World War, France had sent soldiers to Indochina to fight the Communists, but  for France it quickly became a total fiasco, so when the United States had decided to sent soldfullsizeoutput_76e, General de Gaulle had suggested to President Kennedy not to go ahead with his project so the US wouldn’t  live the same situation that France had experienced years before.

President Kennedy did not listen to him as did his  successors and the United States
met their first military defeat.

I believe this magazine will help me learn more about the subject

X Company translated in french

I learned today that one of the best tv shows presented on canadian television «X Company» has been translated in french and will be airing starting January 10, 2017 on cable TV ARTV one of the sister station of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation/ Société Radio Canada.

The show tells the story of canadians and allied spies who are trained in Canada in sabotage, assassination, disinformation, intelligence gathering,  etc.   in Camp X in Ontario.

After their training, these agents are parachuted all over occupied Europe.

I wonder if actress Evelyne Brochu  who plays the character Aurora in X Company will make the translation or if another actress will do it.

Here’s a movie I really want to see Voilà un film que je veux vraiment voir

Always been interested in the lives to the Kennedys, and after seeing the promo of the latest Natalie Portman movie, I can say I really want to see the movie «Jackie» even though I don’t think that I will learn something new on Jackie.

J’ai toujours été intéressé par la vie des Kennedy et après avoir vu la promo du dernier film de Nathalie Portman, je peux dire que je veux vraiment voir le film «Jackie» même si je pense que je n’apprendrai rien de nouveau sur Jackie.
