First off there is a ton of difference between WWII and today, but more importantly the Resistance was never going to win on their own. They were never effective as a fighting force, they were a nuisance and provided strategic assistance to the allied militaries. If there was not a war going on the Nazis would have eventually stamped them out through attrition.Actually having small arms did made the Resistance effective against Nazis during WWII. Why do you think the US went out of the way to provide them with to those fight them?
