Simone Segouin

Written by: George Chittenden : 06 Oct 2019

This brilliant photo was taken during the liberation of Paris on August 19th, 1944. The rather attractive young lady with the machine-gun is French Resistance fighter Simone Segouin. Her first act of resistance against the German military was when she stole a bicycle belonging to them.

Eventually this brave lady took part in large-scale and incredibly dangerous missions, including derailing trains, destroying bridges and capturing German troops.
