This chapter is devoted to French Women and War. In The Unsung Heroines of the French Resistance, I include a review of the literature highlighting the role of women during German occupation, researched from various editions, discussions and recommendations of colleagues whose friend or relative played a part in the war effort to liberate their nation. Some French women have finally been recognized and are internationally renowned. Others are barely acknowledged, yet each and every French woman who has served in the French Resistance deserves to have her story told. The review offers an insight into the lives of these women, albeit from the perspective of an ethnographer.
