Can anyone recommend a good source of information for the french forces 1944-45 after the liberation of Paris.
Looking for uniform details, I know they were usual dressed in US uniforms.
And for the unit markings for their armoured vehicles.

For Sherman markings you can't do better than Centurytracks #1 by Editions Barbotin, " Les Shermans Francais de la Liberation 1943 1945".

13 pages of colour plates enable you to model virtually any Sherman, with marking details right down to platoon level.

The downside is that finding a copy may well be difficult Deleted by Moderator

The French Army of Victory (Officer & Soldiers)
ISBN-13: 978-2352502616

The French Army 1939-45 (2): Free French, Fighting French and the Army of Liberation Vol 2 (Men-at-Arms)ISBN-13: 978-1855327078

I think the first book is good but some don't like the illustration style and there are not a lot of notes.
Don't have the second.

TOE was similar to the USA but there are differences.
