Few figures in modern French history have aroused more controversy than Marshal Philippe Petain. In the First World War, Petain rose from obscurity to great fame; his brilliant theories of firepower and flexible defense, as well as his deep empathy for the soldiers of France and the horrific trials they endured daily, mark him as one of the greatest Allied generals of World War I. His military reputation as a soldier who led the French Army through the crucible of Verdun, the morale crisis of 1917, and on to final victory appeared indissoluble. Yet during the dark days of Nazi occupation in World War II, Petain fell into infamy. Handed the reins of power in France in the midst of the disastrous 1940 campaign, he was tasked with seeking terms from Nazi Germany. With the bulk of the French Army already destroyed and Paris itself wide-open to attack, Petain, then eight-four, immediately sought an armistice with Germany to halt further bloodshed. While others fled, Petain took what he considered the braver course by staying and doing what he could to safeguard the remnants of his army and his nation. His leadership of Vichy France from 1940 to 1944 and his postwar conviction of treason and lifetime exile to the Ile d'Yeu would forever taint his reputation and destroy all that he had accomplished and stood for throughout his life.

A comprehensive new historical study of the extreme right in France, from the Vichy regime to the present day. The Front National has for some years been France's third political party and the most significant extreme-right force in Europe; its leader, Jean-Marie Le Pen, contested the second round of the 2002 presidential election with 5.5 million votes. This wide-ranging and authoritative book examines the resurgence of right-wing extremism in France from a historical perspective, tracing the political lineage of Le Pen and the FN through key figures and movements on the French extreme right since 1940. Part 1 devotes chapters to the Vichy regime, the aftermath of the Occupation, the Poujadist movement, the Algerian War, the ‘Nouvelle Droite’, and extreme-right ideology and activism in the 1960s and 1970s. Part 2 analyzes the electoral rise of the FN, its evolving programme and exploitation of salient issues, the geography and sociology of its electorate, its exercise of local power, and its impact on national political culture in contemporary France. The FN, it is argued, represents both the latest manifestation of a long tradition of right-wing radicalism and a complex new phenomenon within the changing social and political dynamics of France today. This is an essential book for all readers with an interest in French and European politics and modern history.
