Abstract:

"Although victorious in the First World War, the French of the Third Republic soon learned the devastating price of success. The grave loss of life and incredibly harsh conditions during and after the war shook survivors to the core. The extraordinary suffering would eventually bring about the collective failure of national nerve in the 1930s that led to the appeasement at Munich and the collapse before German invasion in June 1940. But during the Apres Guerre - the half decade following World War I - the French held out hope for a return to the ideal conditions of the Belle Epoque, a hope that gradually gave way to disillusionment."--Jacket.

"Benjamin Martin's close examination of the after-shocks felt by the French and their world at war's end is a story masterfully told. Using astute analysis and the cultivation of detail to paint a fresco of French society, Martin vividly describes the period's changes, remainders, exultations, fears, lives, deaths, addictions, crimes, figures grand and small, significant and not, remembered or forgotten."--Jacket.
