BOOKS: The Hotel on Place Vendrome

When you start 'The Hotel on Place Vendrome' it is enjoyable gossip, but it turns out to be a gripping, very well constructed and carefully researched account of Paris in World War II under German occupation, and it's Liberation - I defy you not to cry when reading this chapter.

<Hemingway very tiresome as the liberator of the Ritz!> 

Written by Tillar J. Mazzo - she sure has done her homework. 
(A few errors,  for example:  the Windsors were sent to govern the Bahamas, not Bermuda. Winston Churchill's son was Randolph not his brother. )
A very good read!
