The Free French Forces (French: Forces Françaises Libres) were a group of French fighters who fought alongside the Allies during World War II following the French surrender, German occupation of France and Vichy French collaboration with Germany.
These forces were led by former General Charles De Gaulle who refused to follow Philippe Pétain's co-operation with Germany. They participated in many major Allied operations, such as the landings on Italy, fighting Vichy France forces in French colonies and the 1944 Normandy landings.
