Since 1945, France has pursued a clandestine rivalry with Great Britain and the United States. It has been jealous and resentful of the power and status of the English-speaking world, genuinely fearing that its rivals will steal or undermine its colonial possessions or influence. This book tells the story of that curious tension through the prism of the France's 'secret wars.'
