Description

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.

Here is the inside story of that fateful year during World War II from Paris and London, brought brilliantly to life.
