Descrição

An extraordinary history of French lives under occupation in the First and Second World Wars, this is an intimate, unforgettable meditation on the strange mixture of compromise and betrayal, collaboration and resistance that marks defeat, written by one of the greatest historians of France. ‘A splendid book for comprehending human kind … Cobb has a strong sense of how ordinary life has to go on, even through disasters, and a sensitivity for what it was like at the time, matched by a gift for the telling phrase’ Economist ‘Prophet of the past, Richard Cobb is a visionary’ New York Review of Books’His France – urban, northern, provincial, pedestrian, noisy, unpuritanical, festive – was in contrast to, and predicated upon, another France: bureaucratic, official, suburban, safe’ Julian Barnes
