Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"There are already a number a good books on the fall of France in 1940 . . . but Peter Ferguson has made an attractive addition to the subject . . . this [book] is a pleasure to look at and to read."  —Sydney Morning Herald

"Ferguson not only writes exceedingly well, he also spins a truly ripping yarn."  —Sunday Age

"Peter Ferguson shows how to make familiar history interesting . . . His technique is a combination of documentary research and biographical analysis. Great stuff!"  — Peter Corris, Weekend Australian

"The skilled narrative and clever choice of dialogue (Churchill is always a delight) creates a history that reads like a novel, and despite the obvious ending, keeps the reader turning the pages with great gusto."  —Erin O'Brien, Australian bookseller & publisher
