More About 33 Days by Leon Werth; Austin Denis Johnston; Antoine de Saint-Exupery
 
 
 
Overview
A rare eyewitness account by an important author of fleeing the Nazis march on Paris in 1940, featuring a never-before-published introduction by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
In June of 1940, Leon Werth and his wife fled Paris before the advancing Nazis Army." 33 Days" is his eyewitness account of that experience, one of the largest civilian dispacements in history.
Encouraged to write "33 Days "by his dear friend, Antoine de Saint-Exupery, author of "The Little Prince," Werth finished the manuscript while in hiding in the Jura mountains.
Saint-Exupery smuggled the manuscript out of Nazi-occupied France, wrote an introduction to the work and arranged for its publication in the United States by Brentanos. But the publication never came to pass, and Werth s manuscript would disappear for more than fifty years until the first French edition, in 1992. It has since become required reading in French schools.
This, the first-ever English language translation of "33 Days," includes Saint-Exupery s original introduction for the book, long thought to be lost. It is presented it here for the first time in any language. After more than seventy years, "33 Days" appears complete and as it was fully intended."
