The Best Book Written About

The Best Book Written About France's 1940 Fold:eally want to know how and whting pals surrendered so quickly to Hitler's armies, read "The Collapse of the Third Republic," by William Shirer. Yes, the same guy who wrote "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," and who was busy doing journalism in 1920s Paris when all the more famous people were doing more famous stuff. For some reason, the French book is virtually unknown; it makes my Top Five list of under-appreciated 20th century history books.
