by Richard Griffiths.
Richard Griffiths tells this sorry story in outstanding detail, all the way to Ptain's ignominious end, and not stinting to show his culpability in the Vichy persecution of French Jews and its suppression of the internal Resistance. Petain, utterly obscure until the age of 58, was hurled to fame by his defence of Verdun in 1916. This saved his country's bacon (he would say her honour) at a crisis point of the Great War. Thereafter he became an almost monarchical figure, more revered than any living Frenchman, even after the disaster of 1940.
Richard Griffiths, now retired, was Emeritus Professor at the University of Wales and King's College, London and has enjoyed a distinguished academic career at Selwyn College, Cambridge, Brasenose College, Oxford, University College, Cardiff and KCL.
