The third issue of Le Franc Tireur had a historical theme focusing on the fighting between France and Italy in the French Alps in the spring of 1940. In addition, it featured detailed reviews of the historical modules Baraque de Fraiture and Gembloux: The Feint, a teaching article on pillboxes and an article on using 1/72 scale miniatures with DASL.
All the content is in French, including scenarios. However, (rough) translations of the scenarios from the early issues of Le Franc Tireur are available online from View From the Trenches.
