This is the first comprehensive study of the German occupation of France between 1940 and 1944. The author examines the nature and extent of collaboration and resistance, different experiences of Occupation, the persecution of the Jews, intellectual and cultural life under Occupation, and the
purge trials that followed. He concludes by tracing the legacy and memory of the Occupation since 1945. Taking in ordinary peoples' experiences, this volume uncovers the conflicting memories of occupation which ensure that even today France continues to debate the legacy of the Vichy years.

Jackson devotes a significant part of his study to the period before 1940, and he is particularly strong on the importance of the intellectual climate in France in the 1930s; his discussion of the years of occupation is sufficiently detailed to do justice to varieties of both individual and collective experience, and to enhance our understanding of the choices made as a result of that experience. If, as will surely be the case, this book becomes the standardsecondary work for undergraduate courses on France during the second world war, then we can look forward confidently to the way the period will be addressed by the historians of the future.
Jackson's study is a monumental achievement and anybody who wants to get to grips with the period should start here.
Jackson has written an excellent book.
Jackson has recounted a national anti-epic, and thereby placed himself in the front rank of historians.
This book bears impressive testimony to the depth of France's postwar conversation with itself about what it endured during the war.
This is a fascinating study marked by balance and insight.
There will probably never be a more thorough and detailed account of what happened to France and the French during the Nazi occupation between 1940 and 1944 ... By its end the reader has the clearest possible picture not just of those dark years, but of the forces at work in French society and politics in the years leading up to them, and of the aftermath once liberation was achieved ... This is a brilliant book, but for anyone cherishing ideals of French heroism, itwill prove a painful one.
Jackson traces the history of these shifting views and puts them into their postwar context with admirable patience and clarity.
