An unforgettable portrait of Paris and Vichy France during the Nazi occupation

Americans in Paris recounts tales of adventure, intrigue, passion, deceit, and survival under the brutal Nazi occupation through the eyes of the Americans who lived through it all. Renowned journalist Charles Glass tells the story of a remarkable cast of five thousand expatriates--artists, writers, scientists, playboys, musicians, cultural mandarins, and ordinary businessmen--and their struggles in Nazi Paris. Glass's discovery of letters, diaries, war documents, and police files reveals as never before how Americans were trapped in a web of intrigue, collaboration, and courage.

"Americans in Paris" focuses on the inter-twining lives of several Americans in France during WWII, several of whom inter-acted in signficant ways with the Germans or the French Vichy regime. Others were involved in resistance activities. A great book - good story-telling. It was fairly detailed, but worth it. I learned a lot. What a sad period of history.
