This paper delves into the causes of the collapse of the third French Republic which faced the threat of war against Nazi Germany. The occupation raises questions as to the causes of the collapse which date back to the 19th century.
From the Paper:"The third republic was the longest lasting regime to have ruled France since 1789. It was a mixture of chaos and stability. Governments changed every eight months, but no other regime including today's fifth republic, has lasted even half as long. Between 1870, when it was born, and 1940, when it collapsed, the third French republic changed its government with rapidity unequalled in any other major European state. Yet at the same time the pattern of French society remained more stable than in any other European state. This paradox holds the key to understanding the causes of the third French republic's collapse in 1940."
