Excellent, densely researched, and eye-opening book. I, for one, will never see France in quite the same way again. They never underwent the violent catharsis of other Axis nations and, instead, seem to be reaching a resolution incrementally. I hope they get there; they've got a lot to resolve.
The narrator is dreadfully slow and non-fluent. His over-pronounced French names come after portentous pauses and sound like parody. It's a genuinely awful reading, which makes the fact-intensive writing that much more difficult to assimilate while cleaning up the kitchen or doing side lunges. Oh, and he pronounces "banal" to rhyme with "anal." Vraiment le coup de grâce.

What did you like best about Verdict on Vichy? What did you like least?
The reader made it unbearable to listen.
Would you be willing to try another book from Michael Curtis? Why or why not?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Awful. Simply awful. Made it impossible to finish.
Was Verdict on Vichy worth the listening time?
