The French at War, 1934-1944, Paperback Book

The French at War, 1934-1944 Paperback

Part of the Seminar Studies In History series


The years 1934 to 1944 remain the most contentious and dramatic decade in modern French history.

Covering the Occupation, the Vichy regime, the Resistance and collaboration, Nick Atkin provides an important introduction to this key period.

Accessible and concise, the book offers a wide-ranging synthesis of key themes and events.

Looking ahead to the present day, the book also examines how the French establishment and public have coped with the legacy of Vichy, and explains why the occupation is still ever present in French politics and everyday life.
