A seminar on Paris that Amherst College Professor Ronald Rosbottom gave a decade ago piqued the US academic's curiosity about the Occupation, the four years when German troops held the French capital during World War Two. Rosbottom began sifting through archives, pouring over memoirs and conducting interviews to uncover "how a familiar and beloved city became, even temporarily, threatening and uncanny."
