Abstract:

The French Resistance began almost as soon as France surrendered to Adolf Hitler's troops. At first it was made up of small, disorganised groups of men and women working in isolation. But by the time of the liberation of France in 1944 around 400,000 French citizens (nearly 2% of the population) were involved. The Special Operations Executive (SOE) set up by Winston Churchill in 1941 saw its role in France as recruiting and organising guerilla fighters; supplying and training them; and disrupting the invaders by any means, including sabotage, the collection of intelligence and the dissemination of black propaganda designed to demoralise the Germans. This work was the eventual invasion of Europe by the Allied forces and the liberation of France.
