about

As a case study of foreign policy formation and implementation, this text is intended to add to our understanding of the course and conduct of the Second World War, and the dynamics of contemporary international relations. Most important, this book shows wartime Anglo-French relations in a new light by analyzing primarily British policy towards the French African Empire between the defeat of France in June 1940 and the Allied invasion of Morocco and Algeria in November 1942. Contents: include: La Guerre A Outrance?; Free French Africa; Full Circle: French North Africa, October 1940-March 1941; The Moroccan Question; Stemming the Tide; The Madagascar Compromise; Prelude to 'Torch'.
Desmond Dinan is an Assistant Professor of History at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.
