Darkness in Paris: The Allies and the Eclipse of France 1940

Author(s): Peter Ferguson

World War 2 | History

In May 1940, Germany invaded France and defeated the Allies in six weeks. It seemed that the Nazis were unbeatable. In response, France mobilized five million men while the British put up less than one-tenth of that number. While the British gathered around their radios to hear Churchill make defiant speeches, the French suffered invasion, defeat, occupation, and the imposition of a Fascist regime. Here is the inside story of that fateful year during World War II from Paris and London, brought brilliantly to life.
