Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in Paris during World War II after it was taken over by Germany? Or how the allies were able to get Paris back from Germany? This is what takes place in the story, The Liberation of Paris by Jean Edward Smith. The people of Paris had to live without gas, electricity, or even running water in some cases for quite a while during this time period. These resources were not available in Paris because Paris was pretty much on lockdown. As a result, the people of Paris could not really do anything to try and get their city back
from the Germans; so, they had to sit and wait for the allies to find a way to get Paris back.
I have always been fascinated about learning facts about World War II. When I read this nonfiction book on how Paris was liberated, I learned so many new details about the people in Paris I had not thought about while they were taken over by Germany. I also learned so much more about the people that took part in creating the plan to liberate Paris. Overall, I had so much fun reading this book, and if you like reading historical nonfiction, then I would definitely advise you to read this book.
