Current Book:


I am working on a book about American relations with France from 1940-1944. The fall of France came as a great shock. All of the so-called "Color Plans" for the defense of the US began from the assumption that France would be able to hold the Germans back as it had in 1914-1918. When those assumptions became invalid, the US replied with a flurry of action that included massive defense spending, the Destroyers for Bases Act, Lend-Lease, and much more.

 

The second half of the book deals with America's relations with Vichy France and Charles de Gaulle. Stay tuned for more as I complete the manuscript.
