Strange Defeat

Marc Bloch Gerard Hopkins Georges Altman January 11, 2019

Marc Bloch wrote Strange Defeat during the three months following the fall of France, after he returned home from military service In the midst of his anguish, he nevertheless brought to his study of the crisis all the critical faculty and all the penetrating analysis of a first rate historian Christian Science Monitor Bloch takes a close look at the military failureMarc Bloch wrote Strange Defeat during the three months following the fall of France, after he returned home from military service In the midst of his anguish, he nevertheless brought to his study of the crisis all the critical faculty and all the penetrating analysis of a first rate historian Christian Science Monitor Bloch takes a close look at the military failures he witnessed, examining why France was unable to respond to attack quickly and effectively He gives a personal account of the battle of France, followed by a biting analysis of the generation between the wars His harsh conclusion is that the immediate cause of the disaster was the utter incompetence of the High Command, but his analysis ranges broadly, appraising all the factors, social as well as military, which since 1870 had undermined French national solidarity Much has been, and will be, written in explanation of the defeat of France in 1940, but it seems unlikely that the truth of the matter will ever be accurately and vividly presented than in this statement of evidence P J Philip, New York Times Book Review The most wisdom packed commentary on the problem set before all intelligent and patriotic Frenchmen by the events of 1940 D W Brogan, Spectator
