Opis produktu:

After the Fall of France in 1940, disparate groups continued the fight against the Germans and their collaborators. This new book examines their organisation, tactics, equipment and operations, initially as guerrilla fighters in the early days of the Occupation, providing their assistance to downed Allied airmen and co-operation with Allied Special Forces raids, and then later evolving into more regular forces, forming the army of the Free French of the Interior in 1944 when the Allies landed in Normandy. This was a brutal war of reprisal and counter-reprisal, where conflicts between different Resistance factions could be almost as fierce as those with the Germans. This is a fascinating account of a vital yet often neglected aspect of the war against Nazi Germany.
