Acerca de


Distinguished biographer Charles Williams sets the record straight on one of the most controversial figures to emerge during World War II.  This is the true story of Pétain--an orphan peasant boy who became Commander in Chief of the French Army and a hero of the First World War, but fell from grace when he collaborated with Nazi occupiers. In revealing the motivations and determining factors behind Pétain's decisions, one of the most complex and tumultuous periods in French history is expertly unraveled. Packed with rich battle scenes and dramatic prose, Williams delivers a startling portrait of a controversial figure who wound up on the wrong side of French history.

About the Author:

Charles Williams is the critically acclaimed author of The Last Great Frenchman: A Life of General de Gaulle and the Deputy Leader of the Opposition in the British House of Lords.
