    Few moments in history are as stirring as the Allied liberation of Paris. Yet few people are aware of how narrowly, and how miraculously, the city escaped Hitler's secret plan to reduce it to ashes. Is Paris Burning? reconstructs, in meticulous and riveting detail, the network of fateful events, day by day, moment by moment, that saved the City of Light.

    Overall

    This book has been in my library for more than 30 years without my ever having read it. That was until I moved to Paris for a year and concentrated my reading on Parisian history.

    This is the best of the best history of the liberation of Paris, written in an easy to read (and to listen) anectotal style that lets the participants of the events tell the story. I have read the book twice in the last year, and listened to the audio book once. This is a compelling tale of heroes and villians, with some surprises along the way.

    Written by an American and a Frenchman, this story is one that needs to be read and remembered by citizens of all countries. Highly recommended for anyone who loves history, or just a good tale told.
