Overview
-

The destruction of the French village of Oradour and the massacre of its population in June 1944 by the SS Das Reich Division ranks as one of the most notorious atrocities of the Second World War. The scars that were left will never fully heal and there are those that would argue that they should remain as a lesson to future generations. The ruins of the village have been preserved as a memorial to the victims and a new museum has recently been opened by President Chirac.

Philip Beck, an Englishman long resident in the area, is very probably the greatest living authority on this appalling event. He has now updated and substantially revised his earlier book and the result makes compelling yet shocking reading.
