A study in deviousness,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Line in the Sand: Britain, France and the Struggle That Shaped the Middle East (Paperback)
This book is an eye opener. A British Man and a Frenchman agree between them to divide up the Middle East (yes really) and the rest of the book is a masterclass in British and French counter moves to outdo each other in bad faith. I found it compulsive reading. In my opinion France (and General De Gaulle) come out of the book with a worse reputation than Britain - but not by much.
