The Liberation of Paris by Jean Edward Smith

As an eternal learner, I am constantly reading. I invite you each month to follow along with what I'm currently reading or check back periodically for hand-picked selections of my favorites. Here's what I'm reading this month:

On My Desk

  • The Liberation of Paris by Jean Edward Smith
    • If not for the enlightened and courageous decisions of Dwight Eisenhower, Charles de Gaulle and Dietrich von Choltitz, the liberation of Paris in the summer of 1944 could have mirrored the destruction associated with the fall of Warsaw. In his last book the brilliant historian Jean Edward Smith explains why and how "the City of light" was spared the carnage associated with the liberation of so many other European cities from the grip of Nazi Germany. -TC
