Description

No other Allied nation had as much to gain (or lose) as France in the liberation attempt that began with D-Day. This class describes the German occupation of France from 1940 until 1944 and looks at how the French resisted at home and organized military forces abroad. The discussion will highlight the various sides of the struggle, the Free French versus collaborationist Vichy France, through the prism of participants, their actions and attitudes.
