Women in the French Resistance Bibliography

From O'Connor, Lori lori.oconner@mail.state.ky.us 19 Jan 1998

I am doing some personal research on women in the French Resistance during World War II.

Can anyone suggest some good sources for information on this subject? I have Margaret Collins Weitz's Sisters in the Resistance and have read Outwitting the Gestapo by Lucie Aubrac. Thanks in advance
