Rezensionen
'It is to Perry's credit that each chapter leaves the reader wanting to read more of Fauxbras.' - Chris Millington, Cardiff University, French History

'Fauxbras is an intrinsically interesting character, and Perry is to be praised for rescuing him from relative obscurity...Memory of War in France provides a springboard for future social histories of memory and an engaging narrative of one man's attempt to understand, critique and shape the testing times he lived through.' -Chris Pearson, University of Warwick, Journal of Contemporary History

'As well as providing a rich and fascinating account of the experiences of ordinary people in these extraordinary times, it also offers a stimulating reflection on the relationship between micro- and macro-history, its emphasis on individual political trajectories a timely counter-balance to studies of collective memory...In itself, Perry's book is a model of the historian's craft. It should appeal not only to political and cultural historians of twentieth-century France, but also to those interested in the writing of history itself.' Jessica Wardhaugh, University of Warwick, English Historical Review
