Hitler's gift to France : the return of the remains of Napoleon II : crisis at Vichy, December 15, 1940 by Georges Poisson( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and French and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adolf Hitler had always been an enthusiastic admirer of the French Emperor. In June 1940, during a visit to Napoleon's tomb, the Fuhrer decides to crown his crushing victory over the French army with a grand gesture - he orders the return from Vienna of the remains of Napoleon II, the great Emperor's only son. Hitler imagines a grandiose public ceremony where his name will be linked forever to that of Napoleon Bonaparte. The announcement of such an extraordinary event upsets the rival collaborationists factions at Vichy: suddenly, in a palace coup, the Head of State, Marshal Petain, orders the arrest of Prime Minister Pierre Laval, thereby thwarting Hitler's plans. The German ambassador rushes from Paris with a heavily armed unit of SS to free Laval and prevent his assassination." "American diplomats and FDR were hoping that Laval's arrest would result in a major policy shift away from Hitler's Germany." "Hitler's Gift to France is a work of fascinating historical detection that reads like a thriller and sheds light on an intriguing and little known crisis of World War II."--Jacket

Eugène Viollet-le-Duc 1814-1879 by Georges Poisson( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Figure incontournable de l'histoire de l'art français, acteur central des chantiers et des polémiques du XIXe siècle associés aux restaurations, achèvements et re-créations des monuments historiques français, Viollet-le-Duc traverse le siècle de sa présence géniale et controversée. Si de nombreux ouvrages ont été publiés sur son œuvre, aucun n'offre une étude complète du personnage en croisant à la fois sa vie et ses réalisations. Les auteurs se sont livrés à un travail dense à partir de nombreuses sources et tentent de montrer les aspects novateurs et souvent critiqués de l'œuvre du personnage, ainsi que les liens de cette œuvre avec une vie privée mouvementée et des rapports ambigus avec le pouvoir. C'est là toute l'ambiguïté de ce travail, que de croiser autant que possible la vie privée et la vie publique de Viollet-le-Duc
