Douglas Boyd's book goes beyond the beaches and battle fronts of D- Day to look at the activities of the Resistance in France and the fates of the bands of heroic maquisards. Scattered through the French forests and hill country, these amateur volunteer groups were fighting against the Nazi occupiers, gathering intelligence and sabotaging rail communications to assist the Allied forces, constantly risking torture, deportation to the camps and death.
