In July and August of 1944 French Forces of the Interior (FFI) initiated a campaign against the occupying German army. The Maquis, lightly armed, confronted the heavily armed German forces in a set-piece battle. This contradicts the cardinal rule of guerilla warfare and led to inevitable disaster.
This action played out on the Vercors Massif, a high plateau with good local support and remote from the Wermacht but not, unfortunately, from the Luftwaffe.
The Luftwaffe landed a number of troops by glider near the village of Vassieux and went on to invade and occupy the massif. By late August the Maquis had been defeated and were forced to disperse. Eight to ten thousand German troops had invaded the area and suffered minor losses. The French lost 659 maquis and 201 civilians.
Why did this happen? A series of inconsistent directives from the Allies combined with eagerness to fight following D-Day led to this debacle.

syzygy: Yup! Sorry everyone for the attachment issue! Hope will be solved soon! Until links to kmz files stored elsewhere is can be a solution...

RaveyThirteen: So... I just tried to add a .kmz of some new finds and saw that nasty error message. Should I just hold onto it til the space issue is sorted?

typsish: As far as I know, it should be foldable. But check the rules of the company you are flying with. They have the specific requirements mentioned in the luggage section. And if the stroller you have now doesn't fit their requirements, check the article on new

diane9247: I don't know what to do about the "space limit" thing. I got a post ready, then couldn't upload the small file. I am losing eyesight, so not sure I can even post anymore! 😵💫(Pinned unfinished post last night, but it didn't save.)

willi1: GE Imagery Date: Yes, I noticed it too. And I thought it was something of an attitude on my part.
