The Diary of Pierre Laval

By

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.
