From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 9th Company, Regiment of March of Chad (9e Compagnie du RĂ©giment de Marche du Tchad) was a mechanised force commanded by Raymond Dronne. It was part of the 2nd Armoured Division. It was manned almost entirely by Spanish veterans from the Republican side of the Spanish Civil War when it spearheaded the 2nd Armored Division's liberation of Paris in August 1944.

Having begun in Chad (1941), it distinguished itself in battles in France and Germany, and was one of a number of allied units to reach the Kehlsteinhaus (Hitler's "Eagle's Nest") in the German Alps (1945).
