One Day in France by Jean-Marie Borzeix

One Day in France by Jean-Marie Borzeix

I received a review copy from the publisher through NetGalley.

One Day in France is an interesting look at the events which took place in a small village in France, with the author unpicking the pieces of the story through investigative journalism, tracking down survivors and sifting through their memories of the events. I suppose it is an interesting study in the way that people recall things, and the different stories we tell each other.

In all honesty, as much as I found it an interesting story, the somewhat disjointed structure of the book made it slightly difficult to follow at times.

Still an interesting read, although one for the real history buffs.
