Paris not burning: The Blood of Free Men: 1 of 2: The Liberation of Paris, 1944 by Michael Neiberg.

Review Publishers Weekly, starred review “[A] vivid account…. Neiberg skillfully describes six days of disorganized but bloody urban warfare between poorly armed Frenchmen and mostly unenthusiastic Germans until a French regiment, in defiance of Allied orders, entered the city. While hardly a great victory and followed by a nasty vengeance against collaborators, Paris's liberation produced ecstatic delight throughout the West, making it one of the few feel-good stories of the war, and Neiberg, with a close-up and evocative narrative, delivers a thoroughly satisfying history.”

Dennis Showalter, author of Hitler's Panzers “Michael Neiberg's talents as a scholar and storyteller brilliantly present the complex realities underlying the liberation of Paris in 1944, when the City of Light regained its freedom through the risks and sacrifices of its people.”

Kirkus Reviews “Neiberg's taut narrative explains how the liberation played out.... An evenhanded, efficient account of one of World War II's signature moments.”
