Histoire De Vichy: 1940-1944
Histoire De Vichy: 1940-1944
By Robert Aron
Fayard, 1954, 766 pp.

The years of the Vichy régime, which have been exceptionally fully chronicled personally in memoirs and apologia, are here studied as history in this able, extensive and scholarly work. While not avoiding judgments on the era and its leading figures, M. Aron has done much to put the whole picture in perspective.
