Rear paper cover detached, spine & front cover chipped ; tightly bound internally ; typical browning to edges ; o/w contents V.G. This is a First Edition published record of seventy top-secret files belonging to the French General Staff that Nazi Intelligence captured during the Second World War. The documents are reproduced here in facsimile and concern communications between the French General Staff and the Allies between May 5th, 1939, and June 3rd, 1940. Written in French, each document contains highly confidential information pertaining to the war at that time and includes a number of telegrams and addresses by M. Paul Reynaud to Winston Churchill as well as exchanges with such prominent figures as General Camelin and General Weygand, to name but a couple. Preceding the facsimiles which appear in succession in the second half of the volume, there is discussion in German on each of the seventy files. This is a fascinating and historically insightful publication from both the perspective of the original documents themselves as well as from the German commentary on them. FIRST EDITION.
