This work is apparently regarded as a landmark study of French history, but I found it dull and uninformative. France lurches from monarchy to republic to empire to yet another republic, without much attention to the significance of these transitions...and indeed, is there any significance? Politically, economically, and militarily, France seems never to have recovered from Waterloo in 1815. She was and is a cultural if not a political giant, and more attention could have been paid to France's cultural achievements to deflect from the overall theme of malaise that permeates this book. I suddenly have a strong desire to read some Celine...

This well-written book tells the always exciting story of French political history from the time of the first fall of Napoleon to 1940's disastrous French collapse. Students of French history won't find much new in the book--the author freely acknowledges that the book is based on secondary sources--but it is a felicitous book, telling the sory of Louis XVIII, Charles X, Louis Philippe, Napoleon III, and the Third Republic with a sure and authoritative voice. I found this a great book, and think anyone who would like to review those tumultuous years in the history of France will also find it well worth the reader's time.

Workmanlike and presumably comprehensive diplomatic and political history of France after the Congress of Vienna through the capitulation to Nazi Germany. Well-footnoted and sourced. Marred only by dubious generalizations and weak commentary.
