STRANGE DEFEAT

by Marc Bloch

First published in 1949, this is 'A Statement of Evidence Written in 1940'. Having returned home from military service following the fall of France, Bloch wrote this manuscript to analyse the military faiures he had witnessed. He concluded that the immediate cause of the disaster was the utter incompetence of the French High command. Having worked with the Resistance since 1942, he was arrested by the Vichy police in March, 1944. They handed him over to the Gestapo who tortured and shot him.
