Is Paris Burning ? This was the question addressed by Adolf Hitler to his generals on 25 August 1944. Hitler had ordered systematic and complete destruction of Paris. How Paris miraculously escaped Hitler's death-sentence is told in bone-chilling detail in this meticulously researched account. World-renowned authors Larry Collins and Dominique Lapierre relate the incredible story of Paris's survival in World War II.
