Who organised the French Resistance? Did it ever do much?

I had planned to say a lot more, but this should be long enough. In take one, which I had to ditch because my sound recorder packed in half-way through it (but I didn't notice, so carried on), I talked quite a bit about Wing Commander F.F.E. Yeo-Thomas AKA 'The White Rabbit' who did a lot of organising the French Resistance, and I was also planning to talk about 'R.A.F. blackmail sabotage' but perhaps that will come out in another video another day. Probably not, though. Never mind - sixteen minutes should be long enough for anyone.

Many of the figures I quote were fresh in my mind because I had just read them in "Dadland" by Keggie Carew. Another influential book on this video was "The White Rabbit" about Wing Commander FFE Yeo-Thomas.
