Format: Paperback
...un buen libro, acerca de una epoca negada hoy en dia por todos los franceses, nos acerca a aquel Paris de la ocupacion en que,haciendo a un lado el patriotismo habia que tolerar e incluso ser amable con los hunos ocupantes y de algun modo sobrevivir en aquellos dias que se antojan a años luz de distancia cuando no es asi...pasado el tiempo, en agosto de 1944 los parisinos y los franceses en general de algun modo, por la cercania de los soldados aliados,reencontraron su valor y se sintieron patriotas de nuevo, saliendo de aquel mareo que les habia ocasionado aquel fatidico mayo de 1940 en que habian corrido a refugiarse en los brazos del anciano Mariscal Petain,a quien tan mal pagaron en 1945.

The enormous resources that Holt Rinehart placed at the disposal of this writer have been in many instances wasted. What's worse, I seem to be reading the same book repeatedly. Maybe the same dim-bulb editor has been cloned (in this instance, a Thomas Wallace was sent forth).

From the margin notes (the numbers in parenthesises match the numbered comments that follow the margin notes (added to this revised review on October 09, 2013. Please also read the posted comment by David Perkins, which prompted the revision):

Paris In The 3rd Reich [hereafter, "P3R"] "Had plenty of potential; fails repeatedly... badly edited... absence of a comprehensive dramatis personae of French & German officials is mind-boggling (1); verbose... redundancies abound (2; 18); deplorable prose (3);

"Endless paragraphs (4) & interminable 'laundry lists' of relatively unimportant people destroys continuity (5); first originally creative sentence on page 89 ('Baron Kurt von Behr...
