Francs-Tireurs et Partisans
French irregular light infantry and saboteurs, first employed in the 1870 Franco-Prussian war. They were subsequently widely feared and used as justification for acts of violence against civilians in occupied territory by the Germans in World War I, although they were no longer a significant presence by that time.
