“What was it like for the world’s most beloved city to be occupied by the world’s most heinous ideology?”

That, says Professor Ronald C. Rosbottom, is the question at the heart of his new book, When Paris Went Dark: The City of Light Under German Occupation, 1940–1944, which has drawn critical acclaim from The Wall Street Journal and the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune, among other media outlets, and was longlisted for a 2014 National Book Award in the nonfiction category.
