The Dreyfus trials by Guy Chapman( Book )

In December 1894 a French military tribunal found Alfred Dreyfus guilty on a charge of high treason. This verdict was to affect not only the Army but also successive Governments over the next tweleve years, and was to involve the Church, the judiciary and intellectuals alike in a controversy of such intensity that even today, nearly eighty years later, still arouses passionate debate. The Dreyfus affair is characterized by its sheer complexity. Guy Chapman's classic exposition of the long-drawn-out trials has been out of print for many years and this thorough revision incorporates the findings of recent scholarship. He skilfully reveals how the true fact were, from the very beginning, obscured by a mixture of carefully constructed lies and a series of genuine errors. Professor Chapman examines the case from every single angle; the issue of antisemitism amongst Dreyfus' accusers; the determination of the War Office that at all costs the honour and the good name of the army must be upheld; the effort of Zola's intervention and his J'accuse letter; these are all seen against the political background of the time and the manipulation of the case by both right and left in Parliament. While this book will be recommended as essential reading for all genial students of the period, the layman will find it a compellingly readable account of one of the most significant series of trials in modern european history.

Why France collapsed by Guy Chapman( Book )

18 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book is concerned with the defeat of the French Army in 1940. On 25 June 1940 the French Army - with the exception of a few divisions facing the Italians - had been to all military purposes annihilated, reduces to dislocated fragments. This wholesale destruction, which involved also the Allied armies, had been accomplished in slightly over six weeks. The purpose of the book is to try to determine the reason for this chambardement. At the time the British, whose army had left the field, were inclined to attribute the defeat to the French moral corruption, the British themselves being naturally untained. Frenchmen, among them Daladier, said that the infantry soldiers were not those of 1914. All this of course was nonsense. The reason for the defeat were deeper rooted and more complex." En del af forklaringen skal søges i fransk politik og militærpolitik i Mellemkrigsårene, i en stivnet, traditionelt indstillet militær ledelse uimodtagelig for nye ideer, i en mægtig tro på Maginot-liniens uindtagelighed, i de enorme tabstal i 1. Verdenskrig, hvor næsten en hel generaltion af unge franskmænd blev ofret, og faktisk også helt tilbage til den ydmygende fransk-tyske krig i 1870-1871 og tabet af Alsace-Lorraine
