Summary
A preeminent writer on Paris, John Baxter brilliantly brings to life one of the most dramatic and fascinating periods in the city's history. During World War I, the terrifying sounds of the nearby front could be heard from inside the French capital; Germany's "Paris Gun" and enemy aviators routinely bombarded the city.And yet in its darkest hour, the City of Light blazed more brightly than ever
Summary
An expatriate living in France for over two decades explores the mythology and legacy of Paris between 1914 and 1918, when romantic young men frequented cafes and drank wine despite the constant threat of invasion by Germany
