The profound impact of the Resistance shaped the extremely localised communist presence in the Cotes-du-Nord (which had eight PCF MPs).
The revival of the presence of communist CGs in Cotes-du-Nord was thus made in small steps (one at each election between 1951 and 1973) and then by a great wave (four in 1976, seven in 1982-92), and reflected a common moment of expansion in connection with the Union of the Left.
Studies of communist 'implantation' include masters' theses by Jean-Pierre Le Foll, Arnaud Le Breton and Guy Haudebourg as well as Alain Prigent, Histoire des communistes des Cotes-du-Nord (1920-45), Saint-Brieuc: own account, 2000.
