I would like to make 2 comments prompted by Zimmerman's essay,1 "Dermatitis Factitia as a War Weapon," published last September in the ARCHIVES.
First, as indicated in Webster's Dictionary, maquis, from the Italian macchie, a "thicket, sketch, spot," refers to the thick scrubby underbrush of the French Mediterranean shores; and when capitalized, it designates a French guerrilla movement against Nazi occupation during World War II. Maquis fighters were called Maquisards.
