WHAT IS IT?

Marguerite vs. the Occupation is a single-issue tale, really one action-packed scene, set in the occupied French countryside near the end of World War II and centered around a woman’s very personal struggle against fascists.

This small story combines the struggle with trying to hold on to what’s important in a shattering time, like Catherine’s War, with the high action of books like Major Holmes & Captain Watson.


WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

(Minor Spoilers)

A young woman, after suffering four years of war and occupation by the forces of Nazi Germany, rushes to her home village in the hopes of witnessing its liberation by Allied forces. Instead she finds a ruin, and a machine gun nest occupied by German soldiers where her room used to be.
