Hardback. Tr. by Ronald Matthews. As a former director of the CID of the Surete Nationale, the author was in a unique position to observe the complex beginnings of the political and moral decline which precipitated France into the debacle of 1940. The causes of this decline included not only systematic campaigns of obscene libel against public men, but also criminal conspiracy, traffic in arms, blackmail and murder, committed deliberately as a means of furthering extremist political ambitions.
