Soixante Jours Qui Ébranlèrent L'occident: 10 Mai-10 Juillet 1940
By Benoist-Méchin
Michel, 1956, 3 pp.

An extremely detailed, day-by-day narrative of the two months, from May 10 to July 10, 1940, which witnessed the fall of France. The political views and prejudices of the author, a former official of the Vichy Government, become increasingly evident in the later portions of the book.
