Description

An historical account of one of the most stimulating periods in 20th-century French history, post-Liberation Paris - an epoch charged with powerful and conflicting emotions. Liberation was greeted with joy, but marked by recriminations and the trauma of purges. The fevered intellectual arguments of the young took place amidst the mundane reality of hunger and fuel shortages.show more
