Great stuff covering the whole range of Parisian life,
This review is from: Paris After the Liberation: 1944 - 1949 (Paperback)
A marvellously absorbing history of Paris in the final year of the war after Liberation and the immediate post-war years, covering the whole range of issues - the desperate economic situation, political chaos, military tensions within the wartime alliance and the start of the Cold War, but also the intellectual life, and the worlds of fashion, art and literature, in many cases closely tied to political developments. Great stuff.
