Synopsis

Part of the documentary series looking at the history of the resistance movements in Occupied Europe during the Second World War. This volume traces the history of the French Resistance against the Nazi occupiers. Supplied by the British, although initially riven by internal political dissension between the Communists and other factions, the French Resistance managed to create havoc behind the lines in the run up to the D-Day invasion in 1944. Features eyewitness accounts and interviews with survivors, as well as rare archive footage and a profile of resistance leader Jean Moulin.
