The Collaborator: The Trial and Execution of Robert Brasillach

The Collaborator: The Trial and Execution of Robert Brasillach - Alice Kaplan I am not impressed by this book -- I always pull the trigger early, so take fwiw. The topic, the trial of Brasillach is really too narrow to hold my interest - Brasillach himself is a thoroughly mediorcre and neurotic figure. The more general, opening chapter - on the "making of a fascist writer" is itself quite mediocre and a missed opportunity.
