Newt’s World – Episode 300: Martin Dugard on  Taking Paris: The Epic Battle for the City of Lights


Martin Dugard discusses the comeback of Europe after the Nazi invasion of Paris following the start of World War II


In France in 1940, the armies of Nazi Germany annihilated the French military and captured Paris, the crown jewel of Europe. As Adolf Hitler tightened his grip on the city of lights in a few weeks, the allied powers regrouped and began planning a daring counterattack into Europe. The players holding the fate of Paris in their hands are some of the most significant historical figures of the era: Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt, General George S. Patton, and the exiled French general Charles de Gaulle. From the fall of Paris in 1942, the race for Paris in 1944, this enthralling drama unfolds through their decisions for better and worse. In his new book, Taking Paris, Martin Dugard tells the riveting story of the people who set that beautiful city free. Martin is my guest on this week’s episode of Newt’s World.
