          From 11 November 1942, France was completely occupied by the Germans. When the école d’Uriage was officially closed at the very end of 1942, eleven of the twelve regional écoles de cadres went into clandestinity. Dunoyer de Segonzac believed himself to be the head of a significant network, one devoted to resistance. The settlement of some of the team at Murinais to support a disorganized maquis in the Vercors was only one part of the general strategy. The removal of the boundary between zones offered an opportunity in that the whole of France was open again with the result that Paris regained its dominance. Dunoyer de Segonzac spent time in Paris, shielded by the Dominicans, especially Pēre Maydieu. The Conseil National de la Résistance (CNR) had been established in May, 1943 and Dunoyer de Segonzac decided to pursue the aims of Uriage by attempting to promote the unification of the disparate resistance movements included within the Council. He travelled from Paris to Algiers at the end of 1943/early 1944 where he gauged attitudes within the army and among political factions within the provisional government. He returned to Paris in May, 1944, filing a report in which he argued that de Gaulle seemed to be the most likely national leader. He seems to have given up his political negotiations at this point, travelling south in early June, 1944.
