" ... Examines how bureaucratic rivalries shaped German policy in France, from the despoliation of Jewish property and the suppression of resistance activity, to Hitler's Final Solution and enslavement of French workers. In the process, it reveals the inner workings of the Nazi regime and illuminates decisions made by the French government during the course of the occupation"--Flyleaf.
