Vichy France: Old Guard and New Order, 1940-1944 by Robert O. Paxton

Robert O. Paxtons classic study of the aftermath of Frances sudden collapse under Nazi invasion utilizes captured German archives and other contemporary materials to construct a strong and disturbing account of the Vichy period in France.

The Vichy leaders actively pursued their own double agenda--internally, the authoritarian and racist national revolution, and, externally, an attempt to persuade Hitler to accept this new France as a partner in his new Europe.
