This chapter discusses the story of the Saramaka soldier Kuset Albina. It explains that Kuset lived through the very worst moments of the war and he was the only maroon to volunteer to fight for the Mere Patrie in France's darkest hour. Though his story is fragmentary and undocumented, he has assumed mythic proportions and serves as concrete evidence of the Samarakas' collective contribution to France.

Keywords:   Kuset Albina, Samaraka soldier, war, maroon, France
