3.0 out of 5 stars Reveals the many sided nature of French collaboration, 27 July 1999
By A Customer
Is a very scholarly analysis of how French politicians, the armed forces and figures from the serious and popular arts reacted to the various stages of the German occupation. Without doubt, the new standard work on these aspects which reveals how the term "collaboratioon" did not necessarily mean full identification with the Reich's cause. The author's purpose does not include detailed treatment of the Resistance, nor will you find much discussion of the Liberation and its consequences for the collaborators. However, the account of Petain, Laval, Darnard and the rest is riveting if you want to understand all the twists and turns which accompanied the Vichy administration in its four tramatic years.

3.0 out of 5 stars France under the Germans, 29 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: France Under the Germans (Hardcover)
This is an exteremly well researched book, although it is uninteresting to read, and it focuses on limited areas. For instance, it hardly mentions the French Resistance movement, the atrocities carried out by the Germans or the part played by the Armed forces. Occasional firm conclusions and other items of interest are widely dispersed between over-long and detailed passages, where it is hard to maintain concentration. Overal this book promised more than it delivers.
