We have tended to remain trapped by wartime half-truths. This book attempts to set the record straight. Koburgers study discusses the history of U.S. dealings with Vichy France, especially in the French Antilles and St. Pierre et Miquelon. It describes and examines TORCH--U.S. landings in French North Africa--and its impact on us- the subsequent establishment of U.S. bases there and elsewhere on French soil- the rebuilding by the U.S. of the French Navy- and the results of our efforts. Koburger concludes that the United States did not do enough with the French, but considering the era and the circumstances, we did the best we could hope to do.
