End of the Affair: The Collapse of the Anglo-French Alliance, 1939-1940
University of California Press, 1981, 630 pp.
A careful examination of the gradual process by which a never untroubled alliance finally collapsed under the blows of the Nazi conquest and the attendant upheavals in France. An ever-fascinating story, based on some new material, and written with an impartiality that time and distance can afford.
