France and the Origins of the Second World War by Robert J. Young
(Making of the 20th Century)

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


France's drift into world war and subsequent collapse have often been attributed to her level of confidence; either too much or too little. This book contends that these two moods were not mutually exclusive, that they co-existed throughout the interwar years, sustained by competing visions of the republic and of the best way to ensure national security.
