About the Author:

LARRY COLLINS (1929-2005) was born and raised in West Hartford, Connecticut, and is a graduate of Yale University. He was for more than ten years a foreign correspondent in North Africa, the Middle East, and Europe, first for UPI and then for Newsweek, for which he was Paris Bureau chief.

DOMINIQUE LAPIERRE was for many years senior reporter and editor for Paris Match. He is the author of several earlier books published in France, some of them based on his knowledge of the United States, where he attended Lafayette College and where his father served with the French diplomatic service.

From AudioFile:

"Is Paris burning?" was a question that Hitler persistently put to his commander in the French capitol during August 1944. Thus begins the absorbing account of the liberation of Paris. Frederick Davidson reads with steady tempo, keeping us intrigued, as this chronicle reconstructs the fateful events that saved the city. The reader uses perfect French and German to speak the names and places that were part of this history. You will be moved by the descriptions and want to see Paris to witness what history allowed to survive. Is Paris Burning? is researched with meticulous and riveting detail, well narrated and certain to keep you intrigued. J.K.R. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
