Paris: Éditions Raoul Breton, [1945]

The ‘Chant des Partisans’, called the anthem of the French Resistance, was the most popular Free French song and after the war was proposed as a new national anthem. The singer Anna Marly had heard a Russian song which inspired her, and Druon and Kessel wrote the lyrics. The subject of the song is the struggle for liberation but there is also a Communist message calling workers and peasants to rise up.
