'Revealing on both historical and domestic levels; it is full of odd insights and careful thought, and it is moving, too, in its recollection of a tragic and often forgotten experience of the French people.' - The Daily Telegraph 'a poignant and sensitive account' - Robert Gildea 'This richly documented account is to be highly commended and deserves to be widely read.' - European Business Review
