The Free Frenchman is a six-part mini-series which takes place at the time of the French Resistance in World War II. Derek de Lint stars as the main character, a French land-owning aristocrat, Bertrand de Roujay. It starts in the years that lead up to WWII and the occupation, to the liberation and the long healing that came after. Bertrand risks his life fighting for de Gaulle and follows his own convictions though four tumultious decades in history. It is also the story of the women he loves throughout the years - Medeleine, his first wife and final ally; Lucia, the refugee from Franco's Spain who was his passionate mistress; and Jenny, the faithless English wife of his second terrible marriage.

Book is out-of-print but available as a used book at many different websites specializing in them.
