    Although I usually read nonfiction slowly, The Liberation of Paris proved one of those books that caught my interest early and refused to let me quit reading until I was finished. "Jean Edward Smith (born October 13, 1932) is a biographer and the John Marshall Professor of Political...

    I enjoy reading Smith anyway, but I really enjoyed this one. A thin little book, a little over 200 pages of text, and easily read also. I highly recommend this one to any armchair historians with an interest in WW II. Not as exciting, maybe, as Collins and LaPierre's "Is Paris Burning...

    Meh ... good background information but at barely 200 pages, not a great deal of detail. de Gaulle should be regarded as one of the great heroes of the war ... IS PARIS BURNING? is still the best book on the same subject and reads like a thriller. ...

    This easy but educational historical read was wonderful, especially coming on the heels of our visit to Paris which we hold in high esteem. I found what von Choltitz did to be so admirable, brave and just. ...
