An unforgettable portrait of the diverse American community in Paris during the occupation. From the spring of 1940 to liberation in the summer of 1944, Americans in Parisrecounts tales of adventure, intrigue, passion, deceit, and survival under the brutal Nazi occupation through the eyes of the Americans who lived through it all. Renowned journalist Charles Glass tells the story of a remarkable cast of five thousand expatriates-artists, writers, scientists, playboys, musicians, cultural mandarins, and ordinary businessmen-and their struggles in Nazi Paris. Glass's discovery of letters, diaries, war documents, and police files reveals as never before how Americans were trapped in a web of intrigue, collaboration, and courage.
