As for the Hearts of Iron IV: La Résistance expansion, they've not yet given it a release date other than "Coming Soon" but you can see the announcement trailer for it below:

Nothing too big. My wife has an instinctive hatred of bullies since young, and does a lot of reading about the French resistance in WW II. One of her metrics to judge people is "If there were a fascist takeover and you were resisting, smuggling refugees or whatever, could you trust this person?" (The answer is very often "They're nice enough but no, probably not")
She'd been thinking for ages of getting just one small tattoo, just a little personal wildness rebellion against getting older, and that's what seemed most meaningful to her.

Sounds like a clever way to measure your inner voice about someone!
This is related to an often asked question: What would I have done in those dark years? No one really knows, but what matters most is, you can answer the question for the future!
