Ofcourse.Yes but the allies and germans had very different goals in mind.
The germans wanted to conquer and drive out/kill/create a lower class of non germans in the countries they conquered for settlement by germans later.
But it doesn't change in terms of reaction: their ruthless didn't weakened the guerillas.
Not that much different (as principle) from the post-WWII western guerillas (Red Brigades, RAF, and the likes): the reforms and evolutions in the working class status cut them from their natural suport, or base if You prefer, so the "Hydra phenomenon" stoped existing. Thus easier to fight them and eventualy eliminate them.
