101. "The French soldiers stole everything they could get their hands on. They stole our gas, jeeps, trucks, rations. We had to post guards over every vehicle."

     Some French soldiers certainly did steal. We didn't like it.

     So did some Americans. The French didn't like that. The French had no monopoly on "moonlight requisitioning" - as any GI knows.

     It is worth remembering that the French armies had a very large number of men who had been trained in underground fighting, in guerrilla warfare in the methods of sabotage and the resistance. Such soldiers live off the land. They're taught to. They're trained to. Our own parachute troops also used "unorthodox methods".
