Text Box: Part IV:
La Resistance

Loading messenger pigeons into a bomber for delivery to the French freedom fighters

Germans inspect a derailed munitions train.

In part four the rifle has made it into the hands of a gutsy and clever young woman in the French resistance. A literal femme fatale, she uses her sexuality against the Nazis as effectively as she does her rifle. She and her band of partisans risk their lives nightly to derail trains, cut telephone lines, pinpoint targets for Allied bombers, and generally harass the hated Nazis in any way they can.

Whatever happens, the flame of French resistance must not and shall not die.

General Charles de Gaulle

June 18, 1940
