World War II… What Was the French Underground?

It wasn’t easy for the French when the Nazis rolled into Paris but thanks to the rebelliousness of the French Resistance movement, also known as the French Underground, Paris was eventually liberated. The world owes great respect to the strong fighting spirits of both French men and women who laid explosives on the rail lines to thwart the Nazis, sent cryptic messages and gave ground support and surveillance to the Allies when they came ashore at Normandy. The members of the French Resistance were able to hide out in the forest while they conspired against the German occupation but when these Resistance fighters worked covert operations in populated areas, they took even greater risks and some paid with their lives. Imagine the fear when they rubbed shoulders with Nazi soldiers. The world would be a different place today if not for the bold actions of the French Resistance.  Suellen Ocean is the author of the World War II inspired novel Chimney Fire. Available here:
