Sample Book Insights:

#1 In 1936, German troops marched into the Rhineland, a strip of western Germany bordering France, Luxembourg, Belgium, and the Netherlands. It was a violation of the Versailles Treaty, and the French and British governments did not respond with force.

#2 The French military was extremely indifferent to the calls for modernization and reform from some of their underlings. The top brass were committed to the kind of defensive warfare that had eventually brought the Allies a victory in World War I.

#3 Marie-Madeleine’s mother, Mathilde Bridou, was a free-spirited woman who enjoyed leaping into the unknown. She had been assigned to Shanghai as an executive for Messageries Maritimes, a French shipping line, in the early 1900s.

#4 Marie-Madeleine’s life in Shanghai was cut short when her father died of a tropical disease in 1917. She moved the family to Paris, where she was enrolled in a convent school catering to the daughters of aristocratic and otherwise well-connected families. She then studied at a leading Paris conservatory.
