Description

When France fell to the Germans in June 1940, the legendary Hôtel Ritz on the Place Vendôme was the only luxury hotel of its kind allowed in the occupied city by order of Adolf Hitler. The Hôtel was simultaneously headquarters to the highest-ranking German officers, such as Reichsmarshal Hermann Göring, and home to exclusive patrons, including Coco Chanel. Tilar J. Mazzeo traces the history of this cultural landmark and reveals a hotbed of illicit affairs and deadly intrigue, as well as acts of defiance and treachery.
