This book describes a period during which France teetered on, and sometimes over, the brink of civil war. It shows how the rise of fascism, German invasion, the Vichy government, and withdrawal from Empire convinced a significant number of Frenchmen that killing their compatriots was a legitimate way to achieve political ends.
