a pious remembrance for all our dead.

Berlin will be delighted

with their new recruits in Swansea.

Who will be the brothers

in the Aryan World Order?

I was thinking of creating

a retired sailor,

a few salesmen, a WREN, perhaps.

And how's your mistress, Agent J5?

Still giving me information

from the War Office.

Still asking for clothes and perfume?

She's a very demanding woman.

So... this makes

26 wonderful works of fiction.

The more agents,

the more information, the more risk.

Sometimes I worry

the whole house of cards could collapse.

It is elaborate and beautiful.

But fragile.

Many of the people of France

accept neither capitulation nor servitude.

It is therefore essential to gather as

large a French fighting force as possible.

I invite all those citizens who seek

liberty to listen to me and follow me.

Long live Francel

Despite France's fall to Hitler's forces,

over 300,000 French men and women

are involved in some form of resistance.

They relay messages, forge documents

and rescue stranded Allied airmen.

Amongst the Resistance fighters is

a 24-year-old teacher, Andr Heintz.

I was part of the Resistance

between 1940 and 1944.

My first group was disbanded.

My second leader was arrested and shot.

I am very lucky to have survived.

But by the spring of '44, the most crucial

aspect of French resistance work

is the mapping of the German defences

on the Normandy beaches.

Near the village of Merville they have

identified a lethal threat to the Allies -

a heavy gun battery

within range of the beaches.

I was meant to stand in for the captain

because he was going on holiday.

I didn't want to shoot,

so I was trained as a surveyor.

I was 22 years old.

Four concrete casemates, six feet thick,

steel doors front and rear.

15 to 20 gun pits,
