  Milice - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Milice ("militia") was a paramilitary force created in 1943 to help fight "terrorism" in Vichy France – that is to say, to fight against the French Resistance.
They were often considered even more deadly than the Gestapo and SS themselves, since they were Frenchmen who spoke the language, had a full knowledge of the towns and land, and knew people and informers.
Milice troops were uniformed and wore wide berets.

The Milice (militia) was created by the Laval government in January 1943 with the stated purpose of contributing to the political, social, economic, intellectual and moral renewal of the country.
Ideologically, the Milice was fascist, ultra-right, anti-democratic, anti-Marxist, anti-Semitic, anti-Masonic, anti-bourgeois, anti-capitalist, authoritarian, elitist, corporatist, and hypernationalistic.
A macabre coda was provided in 1994 by the trial and imprisonment of Paul Touvier, the Milice's former intelligence chief for the Rhône region, on grounds of crimes against humanity.

 In a Ruined State: Chapter 7: An Explanation for the Massacre
Some accounts give the number of Milice as being four, others as two and some claim that one of them (Patry) was an interpreter, not a member of the Milice itself.
When the Milice came to him in the morning of the 10th at St. Junien with their news concerning the abduction of the "high-ranking German officer" which turned out to be his friend and comrade Helmut Kämpfe, that was simply the last straw.
The town itself was identified by the French Milice because it was believed to have some (tenuous) connection with Kämpfe and the Resistance and was an easy target for such an action.
