I don't think there was much, if any. Maybe some resistance fighters used them as hide outs maybe.

I have some pictures of French resistance fighters. This is obviously a staged photo.

None, it was used by passive defense as a shelter, by germans as a bunker. The only fight occurring there is a fictional one in Z-War (the book), it gives me goosebumps as I went a couple of times there and easily imagine the depicted combat scenes.

That was some extreme-hardcore shit.

the network was not well known, one map is from 1940 : Suttel Map but it's not very well known if it was used. It's not a good map, distances are not exact, POI don't match surface map. This map was done from 1943 to the liberation of Paris, I don't think catacombs were used a lot by the Resistance. It's not useful, progression is slow, there's a lot of water and lightning was scarce at this time.

If youre ever in Warsaw, visit Warsaw Uprising museum. It's very modern, lots of electronic stuff, and a remake of a bit of sewers.

>How much underground fighting was there in the catacombs and sewers in WW2 Paris?
-There was no room to maneuver, hundreds of thousands of cowardly french hid there when the surrender monkeys gave up instead of fighting.
Who knows how much the Germans would have been slowed down if they resisted instead os sucking all that German cock.
It seems capitulating to invaders is the french national pastime, look at how easy it was for the Muslim Crusaders to take over their land and women. Fucking frogs.

Three hundred thousand French soldiers died throwing themselves at the Germans to allow the Brits time to evacuate their soldiers.

They knew they couldn't beat the Germans, but they bought time for others to escape by sending three hundred thousand people to their deaths in a matter of a few weeks.

Just to recap... Three hundred thousand dead. In a few weeks. For somebody else's benefit.

I should clarify: they didn't die in the Catacombs. They died fighting the Germans to slow them down. They knew they couldn't win, but they fought anyway. They died so others could live. They could've probably lived themselves. They didn't.

Fucking idiot.

Truth is is was organised by English and American spies and on their own they wouldn't have been nearly as effective as they were which wasn't half as effective IRL as they have been made out to be in post war propaganda. I had uncles who for in Europe who told me stories that were completely contrary to what we have been told the last 7 decades. I knew then men and doubt they were just trolling us.

I won't make light of the amazing courage the French Resistance showed in the face of exponentially overwhelming forces. They were brave proud French citizens.
I will say there were no where near as many in the resistance as there would have been if England, Australia or the USA was invaded by the Germans. This is the truth.

One thing that never gets talked about is how much larger the percentage of French people who conspired with the Germans was compared how many were active in the resistance. The fact is some villages only survived because they gathered intelligence for the Germans.
We have all seen the women getting their heads shaved after the USA liberated France but truth is in any French town physically occupied long term by the Germans more Frecnmen provided care and comfort for them than not. This is the shameful truth that has been hidden from the history books though we can all understand why.

Just don't "piss on my leg and tell itl;s raining" anons.

>I'm not even French, I just have a firmer grasp on history than you do
I'm sorry anon, but what you have is a firm grasp on the post war propaganda. How quickly the USA covered up the fact that is supported Nazi Germany in the first few years of it's war effort. There is so much physical eveidense of the USA government working secretly with Sweden tto supply Germany with war materials while it was gearing up for war itself. There was a massive swelling of public support for Germany in the USA even as they were running through Europe. I know the truth because I got my truth from family who lived it, not books published by the winners and those who needed sympathy.

Deny this statement anon-- Before Pearl Harbor the US had no desire to fight against Germany physically and they were in fact still feeding the German wr machine. With out the "surprise" Japanese attack the majority of the USA would have never gotten into conflict against the Germans in Europe.

French collaboration was MASSIVE. It was so helpful that if the French people themselves sim[ply did nothing to comfort Germansoldiers the war would have ended 2 years sooner. This is what I'm saying.
>The whole reason why we've all seen the women with their heads shaved is because it IS in the history books.
We see a few women getting stripped and their heads shaved, we see a few Frenchmen getting executed by firing squad. We don't see entire towns suffering the same fate like they should have if the French people were truly interested in payback.
The films of those men and women getting punished was scripted propaganda

The resistance was tiny compared to the numbers of collaborators and THAT insn't in your wonderful history books.

My entire point is while I have the greatest respect fpor those that filled the ranks of the French resistance they were a tiny fraction, a minuscule number compared to those French people who provided aid and comfort to the fucking German military on their own God damn soil and no other country did that.
They fucking Polish chose death in the worst ways to aiding the Germans...fuck you and your bullshit history saying the French were anything but cowards and complicit in the degradation of their women JUST AS THEY ARE DOING NOW by allowing the Muslim Crusaders fee reign to do the same.

You're the one hiding behind propaganda. Who the fuck would be proud of how fast it military got BTFO? You act like the French should take pride in that and no one should call it what it was.
Yes The British military got the living shit kicked out of it and all faggots like you have to say is the the USA came ito the war after it was all but won. As if D Day wasn't a fresh start in the European theater.

I have a firm and complete grasp on the truth as it played out. I spent time at Sunday dinner with Americans who fought their way across Europe and in the Pacific. Fuck you and your propaganda.
These were Americas greatest and THEY said the news reels were complete bullshit to sell the war bonds we had to have to feed our glorious war machine.

As long as those sources present the vision you like.

You have yet to discount a single point made about the level of disinformation surrounding the French resistance, about how large a percentage of the French population polished the Germans combat boots with a smile on their faces.
You just keep saying NO.
Name one nation that bent over as fast and far as the French did. Explain to me how 300,000 dead in a few weeks is something to be proud of. Tell me how the French didn't almost become German in their zeal to make sure they didn't suffer like the rest of Europe did fighting the Nazi war machine.

Please tell me how Briton, Australia dn the USA would have laid down just the same instead of fighting with everything they had to the last man women and child instead of sucking the invader cock. Please tell me about that.

You can't.

Fuck the bullshit history provided to save the French the humiliation the deserve, they were fucking cowards of the highest magnitude while England was getting it's homeland BTFO, Poland got BTFO several times and so on and so on.

All of Europe was pretty much nazified and collaborated, except brits and they would have done the same if they were not saved by their shitty island.

The only ones who would have resisted a lot to an occupation were the muricans. And the only ones who did resist were the commies.
Until the very end of the war the only ones to take arms in France did so because Moscow told them to kill nazis for the motherland.

Apart from Poland and France, there was no real fighting against Germany.
Everyone says that France surrendered too fast, and that's true, but even with their colonies they did not possess the sufficient industrial capacity to rise up again like the Russians did.

I never posted opinions about the desires of the Nazi party nor have I ever said I disagreed with their hatred for marxists and communists. Stop putting words in my mouth and put some whiskey there. Then we can talk about how badly Hitler up creating two fronts.
Also this isn't /pol/, we are talking about the history of the war, not the politics of it. And yes I do see how they are hand in hand but that's what the MODS want.
>pissed off muslims invaded France, despite the communist/marxist jews being responsible for the muslim invasion
While you're 100% accurate with that it has nothing to do with the french population doing nothing to stop what is happening in their nation. We killed the terrorists who attacked out free speech rally. We stage armed protesters outside of mosques... do you even understand my basic points yet?
All I have tried to say is no one should re write history to spare the feeling of those cowardly cocksuckers who surrendered as fast and as completely as they could. THIS is my point and complete argument. They are rewriting history to hide their shame.
I have proven my point six ways from Sunday and now I go do something more interesting.

Out of sheer boredom and the deeply depressed state your misinformed posts have put me in, I will try to honestly, genuinely tell you what I consider being the truth about the french invasion, occupation and resistence.

Invasion happened because the French brass, who had fought and won WW1, were so convinced that they had found the ultimate strategy and tactics that when WW2 started they tried WW1 tactics against the blitzkrieg. Intellectual stagnation due to a superiority complex was the downfall of the french officer corps between 1920's and 1940.

Capitulation happened quickly because a lot of those in power did not want the war to go on in vain. These were people that saw the tremendous losses of WW1 and didn't want a sizeable amount of young french to die for nothing, again.

And, as usual when under military occupation, three groups of people developed (with some nuances) : those who actively cooperated because they agreed, at least partly, with nazi ideaology, those who opposed them actively in various ways (propaganda, sabotage, guerilla...), and then, the OVERWHELMING majority :

They did nothing. They did not wish to collaborate with the occupant, nor did they wish to fight for a République that they felt (understandably) that had failed them. So they just kept on living, putting food on the table for their families and staying out of trouble. And if you weren't jew, that was a coherent strategy.

Most of those went through the war unscathed. Some even did not see more consequences of occupations than some rationing (which wasn't that bad if you lived in the countryside and therefore had easy access to farms and dairy products) and perhaps a Kubelwagen driving through the village once in five years of occupation.

Where they cowards ? That would be saying that 80% of french people in 1940-1945 were cowards. And even considering the "surrender monkey french baguette hon hon" stuff, that is, IMO, too high to be reasonibly considered true

If you read the entire thread you would understand why I say that. Anons who want the world to be proud of things that didn't happen. I understand surrendering when you have been defeated. I get that. I don't understand why they think they get to pretend they didn't spend the rest of the war sucking German cock and cooking them deliciou sdinners. Other cuntrys didn't go to that extreme. Thats the truth of the history of WW2 in France. They embraced the Germans and they don't get to pretend they didn't IMO.

>Out of sheer boredom ..... I will try to honestly, genuinely tell you what I consider being the truth about the french invasion, occupation and resistence.
>Invasion happened because the French brass.....
I agree with this assessment completely/
>Capitulation happened quickly because a lot of those in power did not want the war to go on in vain......
Again I agree completely
>And, as usual when under military occupation, three groups of people developed...
This is fair and reasonable.
>They did nothing. They did not wish to collaborate with the occupant, nor did they wish to fight for a République that they felt (understandably) that had failed them. So they just kept on living, putting food on the table for their families and staying out of trouble. And if you weren't jew, that was a coherent strategy.
I say bullshit. An invading force should get no quarter nor a single peaceful meal. I've said over and over this is my point. Being completely defeated is one thing, becoming caretakers for those that occupy your homeland in another.
>Most of those went through the war unscathed. Some even did not see more consequences of occupations than some rationing (which wasn't that bad if you lived in the countryside and therefore had easy access to farms and dairy products) and perhaps a Kubelwagen driving through the village once in five years of occupation.
While I agree with your point I say the percentage of French who severed the Germans was much higher than those who simply did nothing. This is the act of a coward. Would you do the same if you were invaded and occupied?
Answer this one question. Would you sit idle to remain alive while an an occupir took liberties with your family?
>Where they cowards ?
I'm saying no one should rewrite history to spare the shame of those who acted shamefully. This should never happen and it's why history repeats itself so often, and the worst parts of history repeats itself more and more.

Now, French as a people went through a bumber of phases about their acceptance of what happened in 1940-1945.

Phase one was the immediate post-war. France had to be put back on tracks, and doing so effectively required a motivated people. So the officials made up the "Tous Résistants" motto : everyone did their best to resist the germans, save for a minority of traitors.

Then came the 60's and the pacifist movement. Some uneasy truths, which had been precedently hidden, were uncovered. The collective perception for the new generation (which were children or not born during the war) shifted to "Tous Collabos" : in the whole, the french cooperated, you (fathers, grandfathers ; authority figures in general) should be ashamed of yourselbes.

Then, from the 80's onwards, truth has started to get out. A truth that progressively inclued all the bad stuff, and all the good stuff. A minority collaborated, a minority resisted, most did nothing and just lived on as trouble-free as they could. And horrible things, and honourable things were happening all the time.

And I think that was, is and will be how most societies would react to overwhelming military occupation.

Now you are free to think that your country (the USA) may be different. That may be the case. After all, you are well-armed and have an history of citizens forming autonomous militias. But do not forget that americans have not experienced a military invasion on their soil for more than a century. Are they really that motivated and righteous or is it just all talk ? I don't think one can know for sure.

The whole point of being defeated is that you can not and/or do not want to fight anymore.

You seem to prefer a bullet in the neck over feeding invaders. But that is a statement made from a comfortable chair in a secure, independant country in the 21st century. Will it be the same when your life and family are on the line, when you face torture, deportation, execution ?

Intellectualy, I want to say that I would not accept occupation ; that I would find a way to fight. But would I really do it, in reality, faced with the odds that the french faced back then ? I am not certain.

Unless, of course, I agree with the invader's idealogy... But that becomes another matter.

Then, as far as collaborators being more numerous than resistance members, that depends a lot on how you define collaborator and resistant. And unless you have some credible evidence, that remains an empty statement in the wind.

>>28924275
>Phase one was the immediate post-war..... So the officials made up the "Tous Résistants" motto : everyone did their best to resist the germans, save for a minority of traitors.
This is rewriting history to sparte the shame of those cowards.The truth is the majority were willing servants to the Germans for a bigger dinner meal.
>Then came the 60's and the pacifist movement.
You mean the beginnings of communism with that cunt who fled the war to start a propaganda radio broadcast to tell those that didn't flee the danger to keep fighting. He destroyed as much of the French Constitution as he could and pissed on America, the nation that saved France, every chance he could out of his own personal shame and cowardice,
>Then, from the 80's onwards, truth has started to get out. .... A minority collaborated, a minority resisted, most did nothing and just lived on as trouble-free as they could.
I agree with you to the point you say a minority actively collaborated. This is the falsehood and American fighting personal tell of a very different story about the love they had for the army entering their towns that was perpetuated in those propaganda news reels. This is what I'm saying. They had the right to believe in the political ideals of the Nazi occupiers. THEY DON'T HAVE TO THE RIGHT TO PRETEND THEY DIDN'T actively support the nazis
>And I think that was, is and will be how most societies would react to overwhelming military occupation.

If you honestly think a vast majority of people in this country wouldn't fucking drop to their knees and suck some invading army off immediately then you're completely fucking delusional. Motherfucker even our revolution didn't have much active support for the rebellion.

Most people, and I mean the absolute fucking majority of people, will completely avoid combat if they can reasonably get away with it. It's a natural response to get the fuck out of danger, and that's why we train and train and train soldiers to have combat-oriented reflexes (muscle memory) that allows them to overcome these natural urges.

The fact that you're somehow unaware of this leads me to believe you're either a fucking fobbit who maybe caught a few mortars every now and again or, more likely, some neckbeard who's just spouting memes and assorted bullshit. There's the distinct possibility that you're one of those assholes who somehow avoided getting chaptered out and did shit like shoot the platoon's favorite Iraqi mutt or collect dead animals until he was told to throw that shit away. No matter what you're disconnected from the reality everyone else lives in, at least half the country is left-leaning liberals, a quarter are staunchly anti-war, (and thus anti-resistance) and probably somewhere between those two is the percentage of active collaborators.

That's also what you're not getting. Active collaboration versus active apathy. Most of France in the 40's was apathetic to their German "guests" and couldn't be fucking bothered to risk getting killed for shit they didn't care about. This would be the same case for the United States, most of my generation (gen-x) are lame, self-absorbed assholes and most millennials are just fucking useless crybabies anyway. That leaves old geezers who are just stupid fudds so good fucking luck getting those old fuckers to shoulder a rifle, they don't even believe in the 2nd Amendment in the first place.

I give up. You just said that de Gaulle was a communist. I really do give up. The guy was a prime poltical target of the French Communist Party for god's sake... And the pacifist movement was in OPPOSITION of de Gaulle !

As for him "fleeing" (to organize the Free French and keep on fighting, but hey, who cares about facts...), "pissing on america" (aka not being subservant to a foreign country, be it the USA/NATO, I thought collaboration was bad ?),"destroyed much of the french constitution" (which was a good thing cos' the 4th republic was uneffective as fuck with no government holding on for much more than a year, the 5th republic is actually efficient and stable for all it's shortcoming, and I have a degree in law so I know at least marginally what I'm talking about, i.e not you), it's mostly bollocks from an american that is mad that they can't control French foreign policy nearly as much as they would like.

I certainly don't love de Gaulle. But I respect the fact that he put France back in the most powerful nations' row despite the country being utterly overrun in 1940. It's thanks to him that france is part of the G8 & permanent security council quite frankly...

If you are going to talk shit about the french, at least learn the country's history properly.

Now off to bed with me, it's nearly 2 am here.

Simple fact is, half of the iconic war photos from World War 2 or before were staged, because war photojournalists didn't really exist yet beyond soldiers who took their own initiative to do it.

Shotguns were loved by US soldiers in WWI in tight spaces, to clear trenches and bunkers. They used slam fire (pull the trigger, keep it pulled, operate the pump several times) to empty all their ammo in moments. The German wanted to have shotguns declared a war crime (as far as threatening to hang any man captured with a shotgun for war crimes).

Otherwise I guess submachine guns were the second best choice. At this range, any good pistol could work fine too.

Bolt action was probably your worst option. M1 garand might not have been best but not suck entirely (until you had to reload, if the guy in front of you had a gun with a 30 rd box magazine).

>>28924094
I like your assessment. Also don't forget that (as a form of reparation for the war) young french people were requisitionned and sent to germany for their labor. They were treated as prisoners (but it was not concentration camp standards either). So if you wanted to enter resistance, you might risk your life. But nazis had a tendency to make examples. Massacre a whole village because they didn't give away the ones of them who turned to the resistance. Even if your whole family (with little kids and old people) managed to join the resistance with you (and die fighting), people from your village who were in worker camps in germany might have gotten a swift hanging.

Nazis knew terror. And they knew that in any situation, a sizeable portion of the population will accept the statu quo (everyday life goes on). If you get them scared for their life (and that of their whole families, neighbors...) they're even less likely to rise up.

Because in a revolution, it's when the people who are "passive" start getting agitated that shit goes down fast.

Some resistance fighters managed some cool ops against the nazis. Like ambushes, effective sabotage... But at some point nazis put in a policy "for one of our losses we kill 10 from around where it happened".

Is that what you call his unending attempts to humiliate and demean America? De Gaulle was childishly rude to American and British diplomats out of the shame of needed to be rescued and to this day the socialist main stream media protects his memory.

The simple fact is he ran from the war. You can't possibly deny this fact. He ran to England then spent his days ridiculing their tactics after they were saved by those same tactics.

Second thing that boggles the mind is that even after Americans and Englishmen died by the thousands establish those beach heads and then beating the occupiers off your lands you smarmy smelly cunts have no gratitude. None. You are petulant ungrateful cunts and I pray to God when ISIS or what ever the muslims unite behind and bring bloody war to you from with in you own boarders that we don;t save you fantastic bitches again.

What? None of this happened to the French, most of the country was only vaguely aware they were in a war because their lives didn't change until the Germans got desperate, and when that happened the Allies were busting down the door.
