This chapter examines the ambiguities of the secret service of Vichy France based on the memoirs of former members of the Vichy secret services and their veterans' association newsletter. The analysis reveals that the Vichy secret services had a difficult relationship with the Vichy government and that the activities of the secret services were defined as a form of resistance. The findings also indicate that anti-German feelings were the motivating factor behind the behavior of the Vichy secret service.
