From Munich to the Liberation, 1938-1944 by Jean-Pierre Azéma( Book )

48 editions published between 1979 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 1,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a vivid and highly readable account of the most complex and disturbing series of events in French history since the Revolution, which makes use of contemporary literature and films in addition to a vast range of more conventional sources. As such, it will become a standard addition to the literature on the Second World War. It provides an up-to-date, detailed narrative: from the false hopes of the Munich agreement of 1938, through the German occupation, to the final liberation of France in 1944. Professor Az6ma not only describes the forces of fanaticism in France, whether collaborationist or those of the Resistance against the background of the Vichy Government, but also gives a place to those men and women who took no active part in these troubled times. In adopting a strictly chronological plan, the author indicates clearly the part played by accident but he is also keen to express his own views rather than to act as a disembodied spectator

Servir l'Etat français : l'administration en France de 1940 à 1944 by Marc Olivier Baruch( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in French and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Questions of state were at the heart of the analysis made by the regime attempting to govern France from Vichy : to rebuild France meant first restoring the French state, an exercise whose importance had already been underlined by the new regime in adopting its name of "l'Etat francais". The working of the administration, an essential tool of government during this period poses three types of question. First, how and why did the civil service of the republic adapt to the "Révolution nationale" which was proposing, openly, to break with 70 years of republican tradition. Then one needs to know the extent to which the government could, would and knew how to get itself obeyed by its agents and to make them accept its model of the state. Here one is trying to measure how far the administration asserted its independence and how this affected the functioning of the state. Finally it is necessary to measure the role of the administration in the politics of collaboration, holding the balance between the restraints imposed by the Germans and the autonomy which the French government enjoyed, at least for its first two years. This thesis is concerned more particularly with four bodies. Three are at the heart of the state : the Ministry of the Interior, which controls at the same time the administrative organisation of the country and the police; the Budget Office ("Direction du budget") ; and the "Secrétariat general de la vice-présidence du Conseil", charged with the coordination of the political and administrative aspects of the state
