Luftwaffe Anti-Partisan Operations in France
A little-known aspect of the air war of World War II was the Luftwaffe operations against the French Resistance in the aftermath of the Allied invasion. A bitter ground war was fought in central and southern France, with German air units also participating. A number of Luftwaffe units were involved, but the most important was Geschwader Bongart.
