In 1939, the "largest France" is made up of the metropolis, where will be located most of the fighting of the campaign of France in 1940 and the liberation in 1944, but also territories on all the continents which constitute its colonies .


Fighting will take place there - in North Africa, in the Algerian departments or in the Tunisian or Moroccan protectorates - and refugee soldiers, or civilians, will be killed, for reasons directly related to the war, for example in the West Indies, Guyana, Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, which will later become the DOM-TOM.
