Summary

In 1940, the German army fought and won an extraordinary battle with France in six weeks of lightning warfare. With the subtlety and compulsion of a novel, Horne's narrative shifts from minor battlefield incidents to high military and political decisions, stepping far beyond the confines of military history to form a major contribution to our understanding of the crises of the Franco-German rivalry.To Lose a Battle is the third part of the trilogy beginning with The Fall of Paris and continuing with The Price of Glory (already available in Penguin).

Author Biography

Sir Alistair Horne, one of Britain-'s greatest historians and commander of the British Empire, is the author of several works on French history, including Seven Ages of Paris and A Savage War of Peace: Algeria 1954-1962.
