    There is a lot of material on the Resistance, the French "helpers" during Overlord, de Gaulle, Vichy France etc. There is in the Forums main page in the left upper corner a search engine which you can use. With the key name like Vichy France you can find our previous discussions and details of for example the co-operation with Gestapo or French agents who helped the Allied there. Cheers. Kph

    Just curious as I lived as a teenager in the 80's. What guitar tones you like? Van Halen? Dire Straits?

    Welcome to the forum. There are no shortage of well read and intelligent people here (me being an exception). You said you enjoyed reading about the French Resistance. Might I suggest Soldiers of Mayhem about the OSS. In particular, it's about a French born OSS officer who is inserted in France to restart aresistance group. Besides supplying and training the Marquis, he fights alongside them too. Book is written by his son who knew nothing of his father's WW II activity.
