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 . Post liberation 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 stunning historical account of one of the most stimulating periods in twentieth century French history. "Outstanding, enormously enjoyable, exciting". (Philip Ziegler, "Daily Telegraph"). "Held me gripped by every page and I was impatient at any interruption. Spellbinding, often frightening and sometimes funny". (Alec Guinness, "Daily Mail"). Antony Beevor is the renowned author of "Stalingrad", which won the Samuel Johnson Prize, the Wolfson Prize for History and the Hawthornden Prize for Literature, and Berlin, which received the first Longman-History Today Trustees' Award. His books have sold nearly four million copies.
