France and the Second World War: Resistance, Occupation and Liberation (Introductions to History)

France and the Second World War is a concise introduction to a crucial and controversial period of French history - world war and occupation. During World War Two, France had the dramatic experience of occupation by the Germans and the legacy of this traumatic time has lived on until today, to the enduring fascination of historians and students.
France and the Second World War provides a fresh and balanced insight into the events of this era of conflict, exploring the key themes of:
* occupation as a social, economic and political phenomenon
* the Vichy regime and the politics of collaboration
* the 'resistance', resistors and its ideology
* the liberation
* the legacy of the wartime period. Topical and compelling, France and the Second World War provides us with great insight into how and what happened in France during 1940. Peter Davies is Lecturer in History at the University of Huddersfield. His books include The National Front in France (Routledge, 1999).

Label: Deutsche Grammophon | Tracks: 39 | Rls.date: 2016

One of the world’s best-loved artists, and a longtime proponent of Bach on the modern piano, Murray Perahia has been hailed as one of the composer’s “most rewarding interpreters both live and on disc.” For his debut recording on Deutsche Grammophon, Perahia turns to the six French Suites – works that are at once delicate, profound, tender and joyful, and all suffused with the rhythmic vitality of the dance. Perahia produced a series of award-winning recordings of Bach's keyboard works in the late 1990s and since then Bach has become his bench mark. Bach’s French Suites are new to his recording catalogue. It is his first release in the past 5 years and first release for DG.
