26 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and French and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of the maquis in southern France, the Resisters who took to the woods and hills in the struggle against the German Occupation in the Second World War. H.R. Edward's detailed and perceptive account explores what participation in the maquis meant for those involved, both at the time and subsequently. He examines the motivations of the maquisards and how the circumstances of occupation and resistance affected the ways of life of rural communities in the south of France.; This is a rich and original book which achieves a fruitful integration of extensive archival research and oral history. Professor Kedward's scholarly and readable history allows the voices of individuals to be heard, and offers us important insights into the nature of community and regional tradition. From the many fascinating and moving individual stories emerge a sense of place, a clearer understanding of the maquisard, and an unsentimental assessment of the role of the maquis in French history.; 'To discuss French resistance to German occupation is like walking on eggshells, but H.R. Kedward has made the perilous passage in triumph, combining information and insight so deftly that he transforms received ideas, and has rewritten a significant slice of history ... a brilliantly written and closely argued book.' - Times Literary Supplement; 'Kedward has written an extraordinary book ... He has a love of these people and their courage which shows through the text ... He has'found' the maquis in their countryside and portrayed them through meticulous study and rigorous analysis.' - Modern and Contemporary France; 'a book that is not only remarkably well documented bu also perceptive and moving.' - Independent on Sunday; 'This is a Maquisard history of the Maquis, and a very fine one

Occupied France : collaboration and resistance, 1940-1944 by H. R Kedward( Book )

18 editions published between 1985 and 1997 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frankrigs historie, 1940-1944, under den tyske besættelse og okkupation, hvor Frankrig efter den forsmædelige kapitulation i juni 1940 blev delt i to zoner, hvoraf den ene blev kendt som Vichy-Frankrig, og tilladt en vis selvstændighed i starten, forudsat en stærk samarbejdspolitik med tyskerne, og den anden var helt tysk besat. Hele perioden er stadig et meget ømt punkt hos mange franskmænd, incl. den kendsgerning at mange franskmænd ikke alene samarbejdede med tyskerne, men var særdeles aktive kollaboratører. Opgøret mellem den franske modstandsbevægelse, som igen indbyrdes havde - og har - mange bitre fejder, og kollaboratører, landsforræddere og stikkere blev mere og mere hedefuldt i løbet af perioden, og der var tidspunkter, også efter befrielsen i efteråret 1944, hvor Frankrig var tæt på en regulær borgerkrig. Denne lille engelske bog beskriver dette mørke kapitel i Frankrigs historie kort, koncist og helt nøgternt, med følgende kapiteloverskrifter: Occupation; Vichy; Collaboration; Resistance; Liberation
The Liberation of France : image and event( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and French and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Due to its potent mix of triumph and controversy, the Liberation of France from Nazi Occupation continues to reverberate in the post-war politics and culture of France. Resistance euphoria was dominant, but not all French people felt equally liberated, either in mainland France or overseas, and at the heart of the Liberation lies the vexed question of the epuration, the punishment of the collaborators, or those held to be so." "Presenting new research by leading specialists in the fields of history, literature and film studies, this stimulating volume is the very best in interdisciplinary scholarship and will define the subject for years to come. It situates the Liberation in the broadest possible context of image and event, a breadth which extends to questions of memory and analogy, and incorporates subtle layers of ambiguity. Gender issues are given prominence, and the challenging project of examining the ideas and reality of liberation, for French people generally, for writers and film-makers, for subject peoples in North Africa, West Africa and the Caribbean, lends the book its originality and purpose. The Liberation of France emerges as a rich area of theory, experience and opinion, much of it critical." --Book Jacket
La vie en bleu : France and the French since 1900 by H. R Kedward( Book )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Children and propaganda : il était une fois-- : fiction and fairy tale in Vichy France by Judith K Proud( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the propagandists of Vichy France, children were both a target for indoctrination and a potent symbol of the innocent golden age of the French nation which the Revolution nationale was seeking to recover. This volume demonstrates how the everyday literature of youth was subverted to incorporate and extol the dominant ideologies of Petain and his supporters, and indeed to promote the more overtly anti-semitic and aggressive doctrines of Nazi sympathisers in Paris. The book shows how the narrative structures and content of children's fairy stories were accorded a privileged position in the propaganda of Vichy France in the expression and very conception of the Marechal's interpretation of the recent past and his vision of the future
