A worm's-eye view of the Fall of France Feb 10, 2004
There may be a book here, but what I read isn't it. "Fighting the Nazis" is an uncritical, shapeless, flat chronicle of daily life in the Paris HQ of the Deuxieme Bureau. Rather than examine people and situations and provide the reader with an anlysis of events in the light of their outcome, the writer simply reports every word of dialogue, every event-and then goes on to the next one. The book is largely dialogue-oddly enough, for a history. One wonders why, when an announcement about a military breakthrough or a fiasco is given no more emphasis than another announcement about a change in the office's lunch rotation. This book may be worthwhile for someone looking for specific details about specific incidents, but a readable history of France's response to the Nazis must be found elsewhere.
An uncompromising and singularly recommended military memoir Oct 14, 2003
Fighting The Nazis: Memoirs Of The Only French Officer In On The Secrets Of D-Day! is the military autobiography of Colonel Paul Paillole, a French officer who was privy to what was perhaps the most important operation in the European Theatre -- the D-Day invasion of Normandy by the Allies. Paillole provides the reader with a truly gripping look at the catastrophic events building up to, during, and after World War II. Fighting The Nazis is a straightforward and compelling presentation of the harsh realities of battle, bloodshed, surrender, challenge, and victory. An uncompromising and singularly recommended military memoir, Fighting The Nazis would be a prize addition to any personal, academic, or community library World War II Military History collection or reading list.
