France has been hit hard by the virus with 28,000 deaths and more than 140,000 confirmed cases.

Although France was defeated in the Battle of Montcornet in 1940, Macron said the troops had fought a battle that had allowed the British army to evacuate from Dunkirk.

President Macron took advantage of his speech to unite the country and defend itself at a time when many citizens criticized his management of the coronavirus pandemic.
