-

• Full colour reconstructions
• Authentic atmosphere
• Unique insight

Drawing upon the thick diaries kept by a Parisian between 1940 and 1944, this book tells the story of the French capital's population under the German yoke. Every information tid bit, paper cutting and rumour about restrictions, rationing, the Black market and the terrifying German imposition, is commented upon by the narrator in typically caustic style, and illustrated by painstakingly directed reconstructions in full colour.
This new approach to modern history endeavours to represent daily life through the medium of reenactment, thanks to enthusiasts who preserve period clothing and the few symbols of the French ‘art de vivre' which managed to survive despite the occupation.
