The French Resistance (French- La R sistance fran aise) is the name used to denote the collection of French resistance movements that fought against the Nazi German occupation of France and against the collaborationist Vichy r gime during World War II. R sistance cells were small groups of armed men and women (called the Maquis in rural areas), who, in addition to their guerrilla warfare activities, were also publishers of underground newspapers, providers of first-hand intelligence information, and maintainers of escape networks that helped Allied soldiers and airmen trapped behind enemy lines. The men and women of the R sistance came from all economic levels and political leanings of French society, including migr s- conservative Roman Catholics, including priests- members of the Jewish community- and citizens from the ranks of liberals, anarchists, and communists.
