    Finished reading the book 'The Next Moon' about the agent Andre' Hue who was stationed in France during WWII, as part of the Free French Group. He sounds very interesting, and I was wondering if anybody knows anymore about him.
    :) Please and Thank-You! :D

    This may be very late for you, but having moved to France near Malestroit, 56140, Brittany, it was suggested that I read his book, which I did giving me an insight into the problems of living under occupation and of the resistance itself.
    There is a museum locally at St Marcel, to which Andre Hue has donated many items. I have just posted a new topic under the Museums heading. You can also if you are still interested use the link below
