When we went to have lunch at Le Detour we took the opportunity to stop at the memorial on the outskirts of le Liege. It commemorates a group of French Resistance fighters who were forced to dig their own grave, then buried alive in it.
They were part of the maquis FFI group commanded by Césario Bretegnier, who operated in the Loches area during the heavy fighting after the D-Day landings in the summer of 1944. The father of one of our readers was a member of this Resistance group, who survived the war and wrote an account of the action he saw. You can read Victor Maîtrejean's testimony in French here, or you can read my English translation here.
