"Géographe, catholique engagé, Pierre Deffontaines est un fervent acteur de la politique culturelle de Pétain dans l'Espagne de Franco avant de rallier la France combattante. En 1943, il ouvre à Barcelone un Institut dissident fortement impliqué dans l'évacuation des évadés de France vers l'Afrique du Nord. Le journal dévoile le jeu complexe des rivalités entre Vichy et Alger pour s'emparer du principal réseau culturel resté en activité pendant la seconde guerre mondiale. Il éclaire notamment le rôle des Alliés et du régime franquiste dans l'institutionnalisation en Espagne d'une dissidence giraudiste, ralliée ensuite au CFLN. Sa publication met au jour une source inédite capitale pour appréhender une page méconnue dans l'histoire de l'action culturelle française sous Vichy. Précédé d'une présentation historique du réseau basée sur des fonds d'archives français et espagnols, ce livre éclaire les forces profondes qui, à Barcelone, ont présidé aux changements de cap du directeur de l'Institut, maréchaliste passé au gaullisme. En restituant le rythme et l'impact d'événements majeurs sur les individus, le journal de Pierre Deffontaines met la guerre à hauteur d'hommes. Suivre ses réflexions et ses doutes offre des clés pour saisir une époque qui ne peut se réduire à l'opposition définitive de deux camps homogènes. Ce livre ne s'adresse pas aux seuls spécialistes. La vivacité du récit et les questions qu'il soulève intéresseront un large public."--Page 4 of cover
