The French Resistance (or Maquis in the countryside), were an organized resistance movement in France during Nazi Germany's occupation and the collaborationist Vichy régime during World War II. The Maquis officially disbanded once France had been liberated in 1944.
Call of Duty 3Edit
In Call of Duty 3, the player first encounters the Maquis in the campaign level "Night Drop" in which the player assumes the role of SAS Sgt. James Doyle and parachutes into the Bourgogne region of France. Doyle, Duncan Keith and Gerald Ingram join with the local Maquis to undermine the German war machine. The Maquis consist of three main characters:
They can be easily recognized by their signature armbands and their main members wear brown shirts, and the other members wear light blue shirts.
Call of Duty: WWIIEdit
In Call of Duty: WWII, the French Resistance appears as a playable faction. In multiplayer they are portrayed as the Expeditionary class.
In the campaign, Rousseau, a female leader of the resistance, is a playable character and an ally to the 1st Infantry Division.
In the Nazi Zombies mode, one of the main characters, Olivia Durant, is identified as a member of the resistance.
