(p.137) 7 Understanding Vichy's Policy
The Hunt for Nazi Spies
University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines the counterespionage policy of Vichy France. It analyzes the attitude of Philippe Pétain towards the anti-German activities of its secret services based on the memoirs of secret service veterans. The memoirs depict the Vichy government as ambivalent toward the secret service and describe constant struggle between the two. The analysis also reveals that the low-level daily functioning of these services was autonomous and their anti-German activity was not known at governmental level.

Keywords:   counterespionage, Vichy France, Philippe Pétain, anti-German activities, memoirs, secret service agents
