Propaganda Documentaries in France : 1940-1944, Hardback Book

Propaganda Documentaries in France : 1940-1944 Hardback

Part of the Film and History series


This is the first volume specifically devoted to non-fiction propaganda film distributed in France during the "Dark Years" of the German Occupation.

This book shows how the Nazis pursued an aggressive series of measures designed to monopolize the French market and foster agitation against Americans, Jews, Communists, and others.

The author provides a concise overview of Vichy and German film policies and then illustrates how ideological priorities and political negotiations played out in the content of both topical documentaries and weekly newsreels.
