Fire from the Forest, Steel from the Sky
I've added a couple of books to the reading list for the potential 15mm French Resistance project, one of which I already had and the other being by the same author, Roger Ford. These two volumes cover the SAS teams and the Jedburgh teams respectively, with chapters detailing the actions of both forces region by region across occupied France.
I've had a flick through Steel from the Sky already and Chapter Three on Brittany includes a section on the Francis Jedburgh group that explains in some detail the events that led to the execution of Major Ogden Smith and Trooper Myodon, together with two of the local Maquisard, all of whom are recorded on the FFI monument in Quimperle.
Brave men indeed.
