The Diary of Pierre Laval
The Diary of Pierre Laval
Scribner, 1948, 240 pp

This apologia of the arch-collaborationist, edited by his daughter Josée, consists not of a diary but of notes prepared by Laval while in prison during the summer of 1945 and intended to prove that his error was in expecting an ultimate German victory, not in any desire to sell his country down the river.
