French term or phrase: en couverts
Discorso del generale Henri Guisan alla nazione, 1940:

Impressionnés par les récits que nous rapportent les témoins des dernières batailles, certains se demandent : « Pourrions-nous résister ? ».
Poser la question n’est digne ni d’un Suisse, ni d’un soldat.
C’est méconnaître notre force, la qualité de notre armement, c’est ignorer la valeur naturelle de notre pays, les possibilités de résistance incomparable que nous offrent notre terrain riche en obstacles et en couverts, et nos montagnes.

Potrebbe tradursi come "ripari"?

Grazie!

boscoso
Explanation:
Penso che la frase si possa riferire al territorio "ricco di ostacoli e boscoso".
Sul dizionario monolingua francese Le Petit Robert (che non ti posso linkare perché ho l'edizione cartacea) viene dato come 2° possibile significato: "Abri ou ombre que donne le feuillage..." e viene citata una frase di Mauriac "Ils avaient pénétré sous le couvert des pins"
