The French army and politics, 1870-1970

£6.99

Product description

Alistair Horne has devoted much of his writing career to studies of the French Army. The first of his widely acclaimed trilogy on Franco-German conflicts, The Price of Glory: Verdun 1916, was awarded the Hawthornden Prize in 1962, and more recently his study of the Algerian War of 1954-62, A Savage War of Peace, won the Wolfson Literary Award. Both are now regarded as classics of twentieth-century history, and - as in all his works on France - Alistair Horne goes far beyond purely military aspects to examine the political and social backgrounds prevailing.
