Written by a scholar with access to a large amount of classified material, this work serves as an exploration and explanation of the U.S. policy of working with and trying to influence the Vichy Regime of the État français (French State) during World War II. This account serves as a very well-informed account and apology for this controversial American supposition that working to influence Petain’s regime would offer more benefits that other options (especially De Gaulle’s Free French). The author explains why this course was pursued, as well as some commentary on how poorly this “gamble” paid off.
