About this Item

Grey cloth on boards. Volume has minor wear. Jacket is worn all edges, torn at the top front corner fold, chipped, especially at the spine ends and creased, rubbed and some kind of soil splash on the front panel. There is a small, short, scuff tear on the middle of the back panel. Now in clear cover. "The Long Holiday was born in captivity - in the captivity which Francis Ambriere endured with a million and a half other French soldiers who were taken by the Germans when they overran France in May, 1940. Its publication in France created a sensation and it was unanimously awarded the coveted Prix Goncourt in 1946. It was dramatic evidence that French courage and French character survived in the Nazi Prison camps. It was water for the parched tongue of the French people, who emerged from the war militarily beaten and morally crushed. Small wonder that they took this book to their hearts.".
