I'd always wondered why the French seem so different, politically--and especially in their reactions to issues involving the military--from Americans. Little had I realized how devastating the Nazi occupation had been. This book lays out the events of that period clearly and uses terrific eyewitness material. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to understand our differences today.
