Mark MazowerThis book is an exhaustive synthesis of scholarly research, memoirs and diaries. It is difficult to imagine that anyone else will now feel the need to bring together in a single volume the mass of material that has been published over the past half-century on France's wartime experience. What makes Jackson's account particularly useful is that it traces both the prewar roots of wartime developments and the postwar reverberations -- the trials, purges, films and novels. Vichy and the resistance thus emerge clearly as part of the longer run of French history.
