Our Friends the Enemies: The Occupation of France after Napoleon
Cambridge, MA: Harvard Univ. Press, 2018. Pp. 404. ISBN 978–0–674–97231–5.
Review by M.R. Stirk, University of Durham
"Haynes attributes the occupation's success not only to Wellington's (and others') judicious leadership, but also to the efforts of countless Allied officers and soldiers as well as French authorities and the country's inhabitants, whose story is at the heart of her account. Christine Haynes's welcome new study will engage and inform students of post-Napoleonic French history vis-à-vis either the Restoration or the Vienna settlement. It will also appeal strongly to anyone interested in the phenomenon of military occupation."
