The Liberation of Paris: How Eisenhower, de Gaulle, and von Choltitz Saved the City of Light
In The Liberation of Paris: How Eisenhower, De Gaulle, and Von Choltitz Saved the City of Light, Jean Edward Smith, a historian and professor of political science, history, and government, replays the story during World War II of the liberation of Paris and how three individual men worked together to save this city back in the 1940s. Each chapter begins with a quote from a historic figure to set the tone for the applied information given thereafter. The war between Germany and France over the ownership of Paris, a remarkable story in itself, was one of great importance in the overall World War and every event that happened after. The heroic acts of Eisenhower, De Gaulle, and Von Choltitz will forever be remembered by historians, and, as with anything, be scrutinized by others as well.
Based on the extensive resume of Jean Edward Smith, it is safe to say that the information presented will be accurate and fill your head with knowledge about any subject he is writing about. Action, suspense, trust, and distrust, are among the themes present in the liberation of Paris.
