About the Author

Allan Mitchell received his Ph. D. at Harvard in 1961, then taught at Smith College (1961-1972) and the University of California, San Diego (1972-1998). His first book was Revolution in Bavaria (Princeton, 1965). That was followed by a trilogy published by the University of North Carolina Press: The German Influence in France after 1870: The Formation of the French Republic (Chapel Hill, 1979); Victors and Vanquished: The German Influence on Army and Church in France after 1870 (Chapel Hill and London, 1984); and The Divided Path: The German Influence on Social Reform in France after 1870 (Chapel Hill and London, 1991). His latest volume was published by Berghahn Books: The Great Train Race: Railways and the Franco-German Rivalry, 1815-1914 (New York and Oxford, 2000). Currently he is preparing a study of the German occupation of Paris, 1940-1944.
