Very interesting historic perspective. It’s definitely a factual, history read. There is little narrative creativity. It was very informative, but I wasn’t engaged by the various storylines as much as I would have liked. The many different storylines jumped around and back-and-forth, so it was difficult to get attached to any one person. It was a great overview of German occupation of Paris/France from an American perspective.
Narration- average, very straightforward. It sounded like a newsreel on radio from the 40s.
Americans in Paris is a powerl audio book that fills in many of the blind spots concerning the occupation of Paris. It is Important to the history of WWII and makes it difficult to Formulate an opinion about whether the French cooperated with the Germans strictly for benefit. Or whether it was more a matter of survival. Americans in Paris is an important audiobook.
