methodological issues In this context, Foot refers to the ‘dirty tricks’ that the French Resistance used when fighting the Nazis. She asks, ‘has he really been wronged if harmed, even if it was a justified action that harmed him? I should have thought not’ (ibid., p. 186; emphasis in original). In this example it is difficult to work out initially the identity of the harmed person, and yet this is crucial to deciding whether he has been harmed. If it is an innocent bystander whose life has been sacrificed in an explosion that furthered the cause of the Resistance, this is one

the Corps down. I don’t think ever girls like them have been before. They are so loyal to each other, to me, and to the Corps.35 Anxiously looking at these young women, McDougall remembered how she feared for their safety. ‘I was haunted day and night’, she wrote, ‘by the thought of any of the girls getting killed. I felt terribly the burden of responsibility.’36 Frictions among the troops With her usual industrious opportunism and desire to increase the scope of work for the FANY, Grace McDougall managed to overcome French resistance to militarized women like the

Design, activism and precarity
Ilaria Vanni

its beginnings, the debate on precarity flourished in cultural and artistic settings rather than in more traditional social and political contexts.26 Maurizio Lazzarato demonstrated that in France, resistance to precarisation was at first successfully organised by workers in the performing arts and culture. This movement also put forward a process of indemnification that would cover all temporary (intermittents et précaires, intermittent and precarious) workers. One of the intermittents’ slogans, ‘no culture without social rights’, summarised the entanglement of the

although the ‘landscape has been deeply marked by human activity’ it has not been ‘destroyed’ by it, because the ‘peasant’s work has blended naturally with the soil’s model’.87 While such language might remind us of the Vichy regime’s ‘back-to-the-land’ rhetoric, it drew on the more rebellious history of eighteenth-century Camisard revolts and the French resistance’s links with the peasantry during the Second World 252 Opposing militarized environments War.88 The Larzac campaign challenges the lazy assumption that rural France is necessarily politically reactionary

to the entrepreneurial flair of the colourful Lew Grade – the most prolific provider of filmed TV entertainment, following the spectacular success of its inaugural show, The Adventures of Robin Hood (1956–60). Grade’s holy grail was the American market, so many of his shows, though UK based, were carefully packaged with that transatlantic objective. Following his first foray into television with a single play five years earlier, Crichton, now divorced from Pearl and remarried, in 1962, to Nadine (Haze), who had been in the French Resistance during the war

7 SOE and transnational resistance Roderick Bailey During the early summer of 1944, Peter Lake, a twenty-nine-year-old British officer who had parachuted into the Dordogne to assist the French Resistance, walked into a forest south of Villefranche-du-Périgord and found ‘quite a large number of men who were obviously living in the open air. They all looked very fit. And the first thing that I noticed was that they were not young men, as I had rather expected to find. In fact most of them were refugees from Spain and particularly from Catalonia.’ The majority, he

memories of childhood survivors, and in family and local memory, he rightly notes that its victims have been ‘largely ignored’ at a national level. This stands in stark contrast to the British experience of the Blitz, which acts as a lieu de mémoire and the backbone of national identity emerging from the Second World War. In France, five times more people were killed by bombing than were shot in German reprisals for acts of resistance, yet les fusilés are commemorated in plaques and statues across France. Resistance and collaboration have dominated versions of ‘the dark

decolonisation which followed the Second World War. De Gaulle’s provisional government made a grave error in failing to highlight the pivotal contribution of colonial troops to the Free French military effort between 1940 and 1944. This was largely a product of the Gaullist effort to bring the French resistance to heel. As an act of political expediency, the
