French resistance in Normandy: Green plan
D-Day and Battle of Normandy
The French Central Intelligence and Action Bureau (in French Bureau Central de Renseignements et d’Action, B.C.R.A.) prepared the “Green” sabotage plan (relating to the French telecommunication networks) at the request of the Special Operations Executive (S.O.E.).
These resistance actions were aimed at delaying the transport of German troops and ammunition. This operation was a success and, in two days, 98 locomotives were destroyed after the French resistance sabotage actions.
