When the Comintern sent a letter to several national parties emphasizing the need for unity with the Socialists, the French Communist Party (Parti Communiste Français [PCF]) started negotiations with the French Socialists that same day. The PCF proposed a unity pact with the Socialists providing for joint demonstrations and the cessation of attacks on each other. This chapter focuses on the Popular Front alliance of Socialists and Communists, examining how the coded cables shed light on the endorsement of the developing Popular Front.
