  • The Maquis du Mont Mouchet were a group of French resistance fighters during the Second World War. Based at Mont Mouchet, its goal was to delay the convergence of German forces in the south of France with those in Normandy, in order to aid the Allies (World War II) in the reconquest of France.The Germans, having discovered the maquis, made several attacks up until May 1944 with about 3,000 men and using aviation and armoured units. The maquisards fought back fiercely.Little information is available on the German forces. Historians have identified some units: The Jesser Brigade, formed from veterans of the eastern front (deployed in the Orléans-Pithiviers sector) 1,000 men from the Sicherungs Motorisierte regiment 1,000 men from the Aufklärungs AbteilungThese were reinforced from: Regiment 2 of the 2 Ost Bataillon of the Freiwilligen Stamm: The Volga Tatar legion stationed at Puy-en-Velay The Azerbaidjan legion stationed at Rodez (former 804th battalion ?) The 3rd Battalion of the SS Polizei Regiment 19 A battery of the artillery regiment 28 (189th reserve division) Battalion of DCA 958 3 motorised response detachments of the Feldgendarmerie An armored reconnaissance platoon originating from Paris 2 Luftwaffe squadrons from Aulnat airbaseAfter several days of combat, the final German attack forced the maquisards to fall back and disperse. Out of revenge for their previous losses, the Germans pillaged several of the surrounding villages, including Clavières.In the course of the battles, the French Forces of the Interior sustained severe losses: 238 killed and 180 wounded as well as about 100 hostages executed by the Nazis.
