Indiqué sur la jaquette : Dans les Antilles françaises, mises en coupe réglée par l'Amiral Robert qui applique avec zèle la politique du maréchal Pétain, adolescents et adolescentes trouvent la capitulation de la France inacceptable. L'appel du 18 juin 1940 réveille les consciences de ceux pour qui Vichy rime avec esclavage. Et ce sont des milliers de jeunes Martiniquais et Guadeloupéens qui choisissent alors de rejoindre le Général De Gaulle, celui qui symbolise pour eux la liberté et que l'on surnomme en secret "Général Micro". Partis dans des embarcations de fortune, défiant la fureur meurtrière des flots de l'Atlantique ainsi que les balles de la police et de l'Amiral, les survivants débarquent dans les îles anglaises voisines. Après un entraînement intensif aux Etats-Unis, ils sont envoyés en Afrique du Nord. Leur bataillon qui intégre la 1ère Division Française Libre débarque en Italie puis en France. Oubliés de l'histoire, le temps est venu de laisser ces survivants d'une aventure périlleuse nous conter leur épopée
