Antony Beevor's Paris After Liberation: 1944-1949 is a remarkable historical account of the chaos and uncertainty that followed the liberation of Paris in August 1944.
Postliberation Paris: an epoch charged with political and conflicting emotions. Liberation was greeted with joy but marked by recriminations and the trauma of purges. The feverish intellectual arguments of the young took place amidst the mundane reality of hunger and fuel shortages. This is a thrilling, unsurpassed account of the drama and upheaval of one of history's most fascinating eras.

Interesting book, shame about the voice.
An insightful study of the aftermath of war (an often neglected subject) and French national identity, almost completely ruined by a dull and monotonous delivery, though at least the narrator pronounces most French words correctly. A struggle to listen to, which is a great pity.
