The republic in danger : General Maurice Gamelin and the politics of French defence, 1933-1940 by Martin S Alexander( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full-length study in English of the political and strategic influence of one of France's most controversial military leaders, General Maurice Gamelin (1872-1958). Gamelin was reviled by many of his contemporaries and denigrated by two generations of historians as 'the man who lost the Battle of France' in 1940. Here Gamelin is reappraised in the context of the unstable civil-military relations and national decline during 1935-1940 when he had major responsibility for French security. The author bases his account on hitherto inaccessible primary sources in France and Belgium, as well as on public and private archives in Britain and the USA. The evidence reviewed, including Gamelin's private headquarters' diary, provides the basis for a revision of the earlier hostile portraits of the general. The author argues that less attention should be paid to the campaign in France in 1940 by which time Gamelin's role was that of an inter-allied coordinator and senior adviser to the Franco-British Supreme War Council. Rather, he suggests that great credit is due to Gamelin for his success in holding together the pre-war civil-military consensus, and for rearming France by 1939

The Algerian war and the French army : experiences, images, testimonies( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Algerian War 1954-62 was one of the most prolonged and violent examples of decolonization. At times horribly savage, it was an undeclared war in the sense that no formal declaration of hostilities was ever made. Bringing to an end 132 years of French rule, the Algerian struggle caused the fall of six French prime ministers, the collapse of the Fourth Republic and expulsion of one million French settlers."--Jacket
Anglo-French defence relations between the wars by Martin S Alexander( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays reviews the politico-military relationship between Britain and France between the two World Wars. As well as examining the relationship between the two nations' armed services, the book's contributors also analyse key themes in Anglo-French inter-war defence politics - disarmament, intelligence and imperial defence - and joint military, political and economic preparations for a second world war
France and the Algerian War, 1954-62 : strategy, operations and diplomacy( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For some 20 years, with few exceptions, writers have overwhelmingly examined the Algerian crisis through the prism of French party politics, personal testimony and more recently, memory. But, far from being 'a war with no name' the fighting in Algeria was on a massive scale involving in all some two million French soldiers. This collection, by a distinguished team of 12 French, British and American historians, published for the 40th anniversary of the war's end, firmly situates the battles they fought in strategy, operations and diplomacy."--Jacket
Knowing your friends : intelligence inside alliances and coalitions from 1914 to the Cold War by Martin S Alexander( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Little attention has been paid to the murky, ultra-business of gathering intelligence among and forming estimates about friendly powers, and friendly or allied military forces. How rarely have scholars troubled to discover when states entered into coalitions or alliances mainly and explicitly because their intelligence evaluation of the potential partner concluded that making the alliance was, from the originator's national security interest, the best game in town. The twentieth century has been chosen to enhance the coherence of and connections between, the subject matter of this under-explor
Intelligence and international security : new perspectives and agendas by L. V Scott( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The events of 9/11 and subsequent acts of jihadist terrorism, together with the failures of intelligence agencies over Iraq' s Weapons of Mass Destruction, have arguably heralded a new age of intelligence. For some this takes the form of a crisis of legitimacy. For others the threat of cataclysmic terrorism involving chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear attack gives added poignancy to the academic contention that intelligence failure is inevitable. Many of the challenges facing intelligence appear to be both new and
