A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This book discusses the experience of nearly 100,000 French colonial prisoners of war captured by Nazi Germany during World War II. Raffael Scheck shows that the German treatment of French colonial soldiers improved dramatically after initial abuses, leading the French authorities in 1945 to believe that there was a possible German plot to instigate a rebellion in the French empire. Scheck illustrates that the colonial prisoners contradictory experiences with French authorities, French civilians, and German guards created strong demands for equal rights at the end of the war, leading to clashes with a colonial administration eager to reintegrate them into a discriminatory routine.

Synopsis :

This book discusses the experience of nearly 100,000 French colonial prisoners of war captured by Nazi Germany during World War II. Raffael Scheck shows that the German treatment of French colonial soldiers improved dramatically after initial abuses, leading the French authorities in 1945 to believe that there was a possible German plot to instigate a rebellion in the French empire. Scheck illustrates that the colonial prisoners' contradictory experiences with French authorities, French civilians, and German guards created strong demands for equal rights at the end of the war, leading to clashes with a colonial administration eager to reintegrate them into a discriminatory routine.

Critique:

'This book makes a great contribution to our understanding of the experiences of colonial POWs during WWII, which had significant repercussions on the postwar political development in the French empire. To date no study has dealt so extensively with the experiences of the French colonial prisoners of war. The fact that Raffael Scheck is also able to present the German perspective of the story is essential to our understanding of the colonial prisoners' experiences. Rarely does one see such a detailed and dedicated work based on so many different archives. This is a remarkable piece of scholarship.' Ruth Ginio, Ben Gurion University of the Negev

'French Colonial Soldiers in German Captivity during World War II follows the soldiers from France's colonial empire from their assignment to POW camps to their postwar repatriation. It does so on the basis of very careful and extensive work in relevant archives in Europe and in the United States, as well as an astounding command of the relevant literature in French, German, and English. It is for those who are interested in learning about prisoners of war in World War II, modern French and German history, and the postwar development of decolonization of the French empire. This book will be a standard work for many years.' Gerhard L. Weinberg, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
