BÉDARIDA, RENÉE
Pierre Chaillet. Témoin de la résistance spirituelle (Signed Copy)
Fayard, Paris, 1988. First edition, Original Wrappers. Very Good. 330 pages. Signed with dedication on title page. Former owner's name on front free endpaper. Slight wear to spine, covers & corners. Top right hand corner front cover slightly creased. Pierre Chaillet Étonnante figure que celle du jésuite Pierre Chaillet, fondateur des Cahiers du Témoignage Chrétien - écrits clandestins qui furent, selon le mot de Maurice Schumann, «un 18 juin spirituel». Tout son itinéraire est fait de contrastes et de paradoxes. Avant la guerre, docte théologien à Lyoa spécialiste du grand ecclésiologue wurtembourgeois Jean- Adam Möhler, c’est un enseignant discret, connu seulement de ses confrères et de ses étudiants de la Faculté de Théologie de Fourvière. A la libération, il émerge d’un coup comme l’une des figures de proue de la Résistance, symbole du combat spirituel contre le nazisme. Depuis la fin de 1940, en effet, date de son rapatriement en France, a commencé pour Pierre Chaillet un duel à mort entre la croix gammée et la croix du Christ, où se révèle sa personnalité d’aventurier de Dieu, faite d’audace et de fidélité, en conformité avec sa vocation de jésuite et de prêtre. Son action se résume en deux exigences: vérité et charité. Défendre la vérité contre la perversion des consciences, unir catholiques et protestants contre le néo-paganisme national-socialiste, affirmer envers et contre tout l’espérance chrétienne, ce fut l’œuvre des Cahiers du Témoignage Chrétien. Opposer une charité agissante à l’inhumanité de la guerre, secourir les victimes du racisme et de la répression, ce fut le combat intrépide de l’Amitié Chrétienne. Récemment Israël a rendu un hommage posthume à Pierre Chaillet en lui décernant la médaille du Juste, car « à l’époque des pires persécutions, le peuple juif a trouvé en lui un ami, qui l’a prouvé par ses actes et par ses écrits ». La guerre finie, Pierre Chaillet, devenu célèbre, renonce à la théologie et assume de multiples responsabilités: directeur de l’hebdomadaire Témoignage Chrétien, fondateur des Cahiers du Monde Nouveau (revue où est dénoncé le totalitarisme communiste et prônée l’unité de l’Europe),-une institution qui repose sur lui depuis 1944 et lui donne un champ d’action pour alléger les misères et les souffrances des victimes des années noires. Tel est l’itinéraire exceptionnel que retrace cette biographie critique, en faisant appel à d’abondantes archives privées et à de nombreux témoignages inédits. Ainsi se révèle une figure mal connue, à la fois solitaire et solidaire, mêlée à tous les grands affrontements du XXe siècle. C’est en 1942 que Renée Bédarida, alors étudiante à Lyon, a fait la connaissance du Père Chaillet en rejoignant l’équipe clandestine du Témoignage Chrétien. Devenue historienne de ce mouvement, elle a publie Les Armes de l’Esprit, Témoignage Chrétien, 1941-1944, (1977), et s’est spécialisée dans l’histoire religieuse de la France des années 1930 et 1940.

BRUGE, ROGER
LES COMBATTANTS DU 18 JUIN. Tome 4 Le Cessez-le-Feu
Fayard, Paris, 1988. First edition, Original Wrappers. Fine. 382 pages. With maps and plates. Slight wear to spine, covers & corners. Spine uncreased. Les combattants du 18 Juin Tome 4 Le Cessez-le-Feu. L’abondance et la qualité de la documentation — officielle et privée — retrouvée par Roger Bruge ont permis à l’auteur des Combattants du 18 juin d’ajouter un nouveau volume à son extraordinaire “saga” du soldat de 39-40 dont le succès est toujours aussi vif depuis la parution, en 1973, de Faites sauter la ligne Maginot! Dans ce nouveau livre, Le cessez-le-feu, quatrième tome des Combattants du 18 juin, l’auteur entre dans la phase terminale du drame vécu par les combattants qui, selon le mot de l’un d’entre eux, vont être “rendus” par certains de leurs généraux et envoyés en captivité, sans jamais avoir été informés des pourparlers au cours desquels les Allemands décidèrent de leur sort. Les derniers combats livrés par les légionnaires du 11e Étranger, les tirailleurs du 9e Marocains et surtout par les coloniaux des 6e et 3e DIC sont aussi âpres et sanglants qu’au mois de mai et Roger Bruge les fait revivre d’une plume sobre, sans effets littéraires, s’appuyant toujours sur des documents et des témoignages irréfutables. Il décrit ensuite pour la première fois les conditions dans lesquelles les 68.000 hommes du groupement Dubuisson, encerclés au sud de Toul, ont fait l’objet d’une capitulation sans conditions. Dans le même style à la fois vivant et sans concessions, il raconte la réddition de la 1ere DIC et celle des débris du 21e corps et du corps colonial encerclés sur la colline de Sion chère à Maurice Barrés. Un travail considérable dont tous les spécialistes s’accordent à reconnaître la qualité et le caractère unique. Size: Octavo (standard book size). Quantity Available: 1.

De Vichy au Mont-Mouchet: L'Auvergne dans la guerre, 1939-1945 (Signed Copy)

Signed on front free endpaper. Light shelfwear. Terre de refuge, l’Auvergne a accueilli, entre 1940 et 1944 le gouverne-ment de Vichy. La présence du Maréchal Pétain n’était pas neutre. Une propagande active suscita d’abord une large adhésion. Seuls quelques milieux restreints s’écartèrent immédiatement. Parmi ceux-là, l’Université de Strasbourg, repliée, acquit vite une importance décisive et contribua largement à la Résistance en Auvergne. En fait, face à la Révolution Nationale, ses manifestations d’unanimité, et ses institutions-relais, les populations restèrent circonspectes et le maréchalisme ne put servir de matrice. Le ’’projet culturel de Vichy” se diffusa difficilement, même s’il y eut des convergences avec le monde intellectuel régionaliste. Progressivement, les populations prirent ouvertement leurs distances. La Résistance s’affirma. Sa commémoration après la guerre servit alors à exalter le souvenir de ses héros et à oublier ... Vichy.

MOULTON, J.L.
The Norwegian Campaign of 1940. A study of warfare in three dimensions
Eyre & Spottiswoode, London, 1966. First edition, Original Cloth. Very Good-/Good+. 328 pages. With maps and plates. Dustjacket. Former owner's name on front free endpaper. Occasional underlining to a few pages in pencil. Upper joint lightly cracked. Slight wear & slight soiling to spine, covers & corners. Spine slightly rolled. Dustjacket somewhat worn, somewhat soiled & somewhat chipped. The Norwegian Campaign of 1940 A STUDY OF WARFARE IN THREE DIMENSIONS J. L. MOULTON The Norwegian campaign of 1940 was the first time that all three elements of warfare —sea, land and air—were fully involved together. In describing how the German attack succeeded in defiance of conventional strategy, and how British sea power and Norwegian defences failed to save Norway, Major-General Moulton not only gives a full account of the campaign, but also sets it in its historical perspective. “For Britain the decisive event in the context of the Second World War was what happened in the First,” he writes in his Foreword. General Moulton argues that British failures in Norway are only to be understood in that context; for from it stemmed emotions, habits of thought and failures in objective research which severely compromised the effectiveness of British efforts between the wars. In 1940 service chiefs and political leaders still thought and planned in a convention of separate strategies. Thus serious mistakes were made both in their assessment of the strategic possibilities in Scandinavia and in their conduct of the campaign itself. General Moulton goes on to describe the successful German attacks against the Norwegian coastal towns, followed by the advances inland, against which the Norwegian army, caught unmobilized, could only offer half-organised resistance; the mismanaged arrival of British land forces; the loss of Central Norway; and the fighting round Narvik, where General Died and his mountain soldiers found themselves isolated in the face of much superior Allied forces. But in the difficult conditions of an Arctic thaw, the Allied action dragged on until disastrous events in France forced withdrawal leaving the previous capture of Narvik itself an empty gesture. In the event nothing that happened in Norway could have prevented the fall of France and the isolation of Britain. Yet, General Moulton maintains, there were moments in the Norwegian campaign when opportunities boldly taken might have brought successes damaging to Hitler’s self-confidence and prestige as a war leader. To assess these tantalising moments some yardstick other than British strategic convention of the period is needed, and for it the author turns to the bitter struggle between Americans and Japanese over the island of Guadalcanal, where the great Pacific offensive started in 1942. Drawing on British, Norwegian and German official histories and many other sources, General Moulton has for the first time brought together the full stories of the three main protagonists in a campaign of lasting interest and marked relevance to the modern problem of limited war.
