The authors explore virtually every facet of life in Paris between 1944 and 1949. Behind colourful anecdotes they puncture national myths without swapping them for distorted, jingoistic legends.Review:

Held me gripped by every page and I was impatient at any interruption. Spellbinding, often frightening and sometimes funny (Alec Guinness Daily Mail)
