Post liberation Paris – an epoch charged with political and conflicting emotions. Liberation was greeted with joy but marked by recriminations and the trauma of purges. The feverish intellectual arguments of the young took place amidst the mundane reality of hunger and fuel shortages. This is a stunning historical account of one of the most stimulating periods in twentieth century French history.
Outstanding, enormously enjoyable, exciting
Held me gripped by every page and I was impatient at any interruption. Spellbinding, often frightening and sometimes funny
