Why France collapsed by Guy Chapman( Book )

15 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book is concerned with the defeat of the French Army in 1940. On 25 June 1940 the French Army - with the exception of a few divisions facing the Italians - had been to all military purposes annihilated, reduces to dislocated fragments. This wholesale destruction, which involved also the Allied armies, had been accomplished in slightly over six weeks. The purpose of the book is to try to determine the reason for this chambardement. At the time the British, whose army had left the field, were inclined to attribute the defeat to the French moral corruption, the British themselves being naturally untained. Frenchmen, among them Daladier, said that the infantry soldiers were not those of 1914. All this of course was nonsense. The reason for the defeat were deeper rooted and more complex." En del af forklaringen skal søges i fransk politik og militærpolitik i Mellemkrigsårene, i en stivnet, traditionelt indstillet militær ledelse uimodtagelig for nye ideer, i en mægtig tro på Maginot-liniens uindtagelighed, i de enorme tabstal i 1.Verdenskrig, hvor næsten en hel generaltion af unge franskmænd blev ofret, og faktisk også helt tilbage til den ydmygende fransk-tyske krig i 1870-1871 og tabet af Alsace-Lorraine

The novel chronicles the fall from power of the Caliph Vathek (a fictionalized version of the historical Al-Wathiq), who renounces Islam and engages with his mother, Carathis, in a series of licentious and deplorable activities designed to gain him supernatural powers. At the end of the novel, instead of attaining these powers, Vathek descends into a hell ruled by the demon Eblis where he is doomed to wander endlessly and speechlessly. --Wikipedia.com
