Master Box 1:35 - French Resistance 'Maquis'


Master Box 1:35 French Resistance 'Maquis' - Plastic Figure Model Kit #3551

The Maquis was a French guerrilla movement fighting on the side of French Resistance during the Vichy regime in occupied France. It began out of small rural bands and consisted of men who were hiding in the mountainous regions of the South of France in order to avoid deportation to German labour camps. Later the bands were organised into larger guerrilla groups. The word "Maquis" can be translated as "thicket" or a "bush". The term is used to name a kind of terrain in the Mediterranean region densely covered by evergreen shrubs.

The kit represents four Maquis guerrillas and a captured German officer.
