The Fall of France

The Nazi Invasion of 1940

Julian Jackson

The Making of the Modern World

This exciting new book by Julian Jackson, a leading historian of twentieth-century France, charts the breathtakingly rapid events that led to the defeat and surrender of one of the greatest bastions of the Western Allies. Using eyewitness accounts, memoirs, and diaries to bring the story to life, Jackson not only recreates the intense atmosphere of the weeks leading up to the establishment of the Vichy regime, but also unravels the historical evidence to produce a fresh answer to the perennial debate over the inevitablity of the defeat.
