The Government of Vichy
By Lieutenant-Colonel Pierre Tissier
Harrap, 1942, 347 pp.

This is an invaluable book, the first that gives a comprehensive and objective account of the origins, the ideology, the legal façade, and the political and economic realities of the Pétain régime. The author was formerly a high civil official in France who now serves in the Free French cause as Comptroller and Legal Adviser.
