This book looks for the first time at the ways in which the Allies and the French, liberators and liberated, met and understood each other in the course of the liberation of France. Using the words of participants from both sides, the book examines the relationships which developed in Normandy, Cherbourg, Provence, the Pyrenees-Orientales and Reims. Liberation was a multi-faceted event, and communities in different parts of France developed different approaches to the often painful business of meeting and living together. Living with the Liberators brings together Anglo-American and French narratives of the Liberation, and shows how people 'on the ground', in particular areas of France, lived through these events together.
