Notes:
The liberation of Paris was a momentous point in 20th-century history, yet it is now largely forgotten outside France. 'Eleven Days in August' is a pulsating hour-by-hour reconstruction of the tumultuous events that shaped the final phase of the war and the future of France, told with the pace of a thriller. While examining the conflicting national and international interests that played out in the bloody street fighting, it tells of how, in eleven dramatic days, people lived, fought and died in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
