In 1951, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, hero of the liberation of Europe, returned to Paris to command NATO forces. The US Army built a huge infrastructure across France to provide logistical support to the US Seventh Army in Germany during the Cold War. The US Air Force also sent aircraft to France to provide a nuclear deterrent to Soviet aggression. By 1962, the US military had 100,000 troops and family members living in France, and employed 22,000 French civilians. This monumental book is built on research in 50 international archives and more than 400 interviews. It is the definitive work on the postwar American military occupation of France and contains authoritative text along with original, professionally made maps, diagrams, and illustrations.

/* LB742, 0-582-36882-0 , Stovall, Tyler, France Since the Second World War */ This book focuses in particular on the French role in a global context, and on relations with the US, Europe and the French Empire. Tyler Stovall explores the French post-war recovery and the thirty years of prosperity that followed. Arranged in a broad chronological framework, the book examines the wars France fought against national independence movements in the 1950s and 1960s, and developments in French culture and the intelligentsia, from the events of 1968 to Euro-Disney. The Mitterand era is scrutinized, with coverage of the rising tide of the extreme right, racial conflict and immigration, and new relations with Europe in the post-Soviet era. For readers interested in French history.

The Bloody Hostilities, Feuds, and Quarrels that Refuse to Release their Grip. Sometimes the causes of war are so intractable, the opponents so unyielding, and the rivalries so deep-rooted that the combat continues for years, decades, even centuries. And often when it does abate, the resentments still smolder, so that the slightest spark might reignite the conflagration. An at once captivating and unsettling volume, Why Some Wars Never End shines a spotlight on fourteen of history’s longest-running conflicts. They range from the almost century-long Punic Wars, which saw ancient Rome achieve dominance over the Mediterranean and lay the foundations of its world-changing empire, to the seventy years of uprisings and bloody encounters that triggered the Jewish Diaspora in the second century CE, to the nineteenth-century Seminole Wars, which virtually wiped out the Seminole Indians, to the violent British suppression of Afghan self-rule that set the stage for that nation’s distressing contemporary plight. Each of these wars had consequences and influences far beyond its source and the reach of its battles, not only redrawing political boundaries, but also coloring the worldview of generations of participants and bystanders, and thereby refashioning entire cultures. And all demonstrate, in harrowing fashion, why violence still stains our modern world, and why warfare shows no sign of ending any time soon.
