Arguing that the resistance in France during the Second World War
was always transnational in important ways, this piece identifies some of the
recent scholarship that has expanded both the temporal and geographic
parameters of the French Resistance. It introduces some of the key themes of
this collection of articles and underscores the important contributions made
by the participating authors. As these articles reveal, we can find sites of
transnational resistance by looking at the relationship between the Allies
and the resistance, the role that non-French denizens played in the resistance,
the politics of cultural resistance, and the circulation of downed
Anglo-American aircrews in Europe.
