"A splendid book. It provides an admirably concise narrative of themajor events and personalities that shaped the experience ofcollaboration and resistance in France between 1940 and 1944 withmany new insights drawn from recent research." TeachingHistory

"A tour de force. To write a history of Vichy, collaboration,resistance and liberation in only 80 pages ... is a feat only asskilled and scholarly a historian such as Mr. Kedward could havecarried out." Association for the Study of Modern andContemporary France

From the Back Cover

This concise history of France from the occupation in 1940 toliberation in 1944 focuses on the struggle between those whofavored collaboration with the occupying Germans and those whoopted to resist.

Roderick Kedward shows how ordinary people experienced theoccupation; he examines the politics and ideology of the Vichyregime, and he discusses the many different forms of resistancelaunched from inside and outside France. He particularly emphasizesthe changing nature of both collaboration and resistance as thepressure of the occupation intensified, and asks whether France wasinvolved in a civil war by 1944.

Format: Paperback
Although this text was actually written about 15 years ago it has still not gone out of date. The analysis is intelligent and extremely original. One of the excellent things Kedward does here is to focus the reader's mind on questions of everyday life. The book is extremely readable and can be highly recommended to anyone with even a passing interest in history. The book will grab you from beginning to end. Even if you have never read anything else on world war two France check this one out.

Format: Paperback
This is a really excellent book. It is readable and yet scholarly. The author is one of the leading authorities on France during the Second World War and because he was always so far ahead of his time the book doesn't feel dated. This is history you can trust and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in this period. Excellent.

11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Astolath on 1 Mar. 2005
Format: Paperback
I bought this after watching Marcel Ophuls 'The Sorrow and the Pity', and wanting to know more about the reality of the French occupation and collaboration. It's more of a lengthy essay than an in-depth examination of the issues, but the author does pack a lot of information into it. It's an interesting introduction to, and summary of, this difficult but fascinating period of French wartime history.
