Product Details


“[Dugard’s] ambition is to tell a gripping story. In this he succeeds triumphantly. One reads his narrative, mostly in the present tense, as if watching a film…. Dugard has real narrative gifts.”The Washington Post

“Better than the Killing books.”The Valdosta Daily Times

Taking Paris reads like a film script; such is the immediacy of the writing and use of the present tense that you feel yourself in the action, striding up the Champs-Élysées liberating the French capital from the Nazis.”—Andrew Roberts, New York Times bestselling author of Churchill: Walking with Destiny

“Written in the style of the Killing books, Taking Paris is an exciting examination of the French involvement during World War II. Heroes and villains abound. You’ll enjoy this fast-paced book immensely.”—Bill O’Reilly, #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Killing Patton and Killing Lincoln

Taking Paris does for Paris during World War II what The Splendid and the Vile did for London. Martin Dugard knows how to make history read with as much pace as the best fiction.”—James Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Deadly Cross

“A gripping, well-written account… This is popular history at its best.”Winnipeg Free Press

“Fast paced… [a] story of personal sacrifices and the will to win.”—The Virginia Gazette

Taking Paris is a captivating retelling of Paris through WWII. Its gripping, easy-to-read, cinematic writing made it hard to put down.”—Town Hall

“Dugard, coauthor of the Killing series with Bill O’Reilly, delivers a stirring history of the fight to retake Paris…. Cinematic details evoke the despair of the city’s capture and the euphoria of its liberation, when peals of church bells and crowds singing the French national anthem celebrated the arrival of French and American armored divisions. WWII buffs will be enthralled.”—Publishers Weekly

“[A] breathless historical narrative that will find a receptive audience among fans of Dugard and the [Bill] O’Reilly series.”—Kirkus Reviews
