How did Hitler and his generals manage the swift conquest of France, considering that the French and their allies were superior in every measurable dimension and considering the Germans' own scepticism about their chances? This title is a new interpretation of Germany's lightning attack that swept the Wehrmacht to Paris in the spring of 1940. It studies the years leading up to those crucial weeks and suggests new ways to think about the decisions taken on both sides.

Emest R May, the distinguished diplomatic historian, is Professor of History at Harvard University and the author of eighteen books.

Review:

'A splendid revisionist work...A truly international study in European diplomatic and military history...May's description of the military campaigning of 1940 is superb.' - Paul Kennedy, Los Angeles Times Book Review; 'A beautifully written narrative, rendered in deft prose and in riveting and fascinating detail, Strange Victory will become a classic.' - Wm. Roger Louis, Kerr Professor at the University of Texas at Austin; 'A broad-shouldered, cogent, powerfully argued revisionist study of the battle of France of 1940.' - Richard Bernstein, The New York Times Review
