By 1940, France was defeated, but its valiant insurgency against Nazi rule had only just begun, with hundreds of thousands of French men and women perpetrating acts of sabotage, producing underground anti-fascist publications, and supplying the Allies with vital intelligence. As Matthew Cobb reveals here, however, General de Gaulle crafted a national myth from this movement, leaving much of the true story untold. Based on hundreds of eyewitness accounts and including recently released archival material, Cobb's history—illustrated with 16 pages of black and white photos—brings to light a life-or-death struggle that is even more heroic and harrowing than the version enshrined in French history.
