In Search of the Maquis: Rural Resistance in Southern France, 1942-1944 (Clarendon Paperbacks)

This is a study of the Maquis in southern France, the Resisters who took to the woods and hills in the struggle against the German Occupation in the Second World War. H. R. Kedward's detailed and perceptive account explores what participation in the Maquis meant for those involved both at the time and subsequently. He examines the motivations of the maquisards and how the circumstances of occupation and resistance affected the ways of life of rural communities in the south of France. Drawing on extensive archival research and oral histories of the participants, this original and readable book offers us important insights into the nature of community and regional tradition.
