    I notice this question has been ignored still.

    I'll just use this post to correct myself - I though there weren't any "freedom fighters" who had NOT also engaged in atrocities or barbarity against any civilians - I was forgetting Mahatma Ghandi and his peaceful freedom fighters. Even then however, I couldn't guarantee all his followers acted without attacking any civilians.

    Thanks for the link, it is interesting, but the werwolf haven't done anything:

    Alleged Werwolf actions

    A number of instances of post-war violence have been attributed to Werwolf activity, but none have been proven.

    * It has been claimed that the destruction of the United States Military Government police headquarters in Bremen on June 5 1945 by two explosions which resulted in 44 deaths [18] was a Werwolf-related attack. There is, however, no proof that it was due to Werwolf actions rather than to unexploded bombs or delayed-action ordnance.
    * Dr. Franz Oppenhoff, the newly appointed mayor of Aachen, was murdered outside his home in March 1945, allegedly by Werwolfs, but was in fact assassinated by an SS unit flown in at the order of Heinrich Himmler.[19]
    * Major John Poston, Field Marshal Sir Bernard Law Montgomery's liaison officer was ambushed and killed a few days before Germany's surrender by unidentified assailants; in reality Poston died in an ambush by regular troops.[20]
    * Colonel-General Nikolai Berzarin, Soviet commandant of Berlin is often claimed to have been assassinated by Werwolfs, but actually died in a motorcycle accident on June 16 1945.[21]
    * The Werwolf propaganda station "Radio Werwolf" (which actually broadcast from Nauen near Berlin during April 1945), also claimed responsibility for the assassination of Major General Maurice Rose, commander of the US 3rd Armored Division on 30 March 1945[22], who was in reality killed in action by regular troops on 31 March[23].
    * On 31 July 1945 an ammunition dump in Ústí nad Labem (Aussig an der Elbe), a largely ethnic German city in northern Bohemia ("Sudetenland"), exploded, killing 26 or 27[citation needed] people and injuring dozens. The explosion resulted in the "Ústí massacre" of ethnic Germans and was blamed on the Werwolf organization. A book published following the 1989 Velvet Revolution states that the explosion and massacre was perpetrated by Communists

    Because it is a red herring.

    The people living under the Taliban (etc) don't have a choice; if they try to exercise some degree of choice contrary to dogma, they are killed.

    And yet, some still argue that the people fighting to put people like the Taliban in power are 'freedom fighters'.

    How, exactly, does the Nazi resistance ---not--- meet your definition of "freedom fighters"?
