An excellent addition to undergraduate collections.' Choice 'Here is a responsible but absorbing account of a troubled moment in French history. This book richly deserves the broad readership which it seeks.' The Historian 'There are delightful pen portraits of politicians and diplomats such as Briand, Laval, Leger and Berthelot, and a gift for the witty phrase that makes the book a pleasure to read.'
