FRENCH HISTORY (NINETEENTH-TWENTIETH CENTURY)
During the fourth year of my Honorary Fellowship, for which I am most grateful to the NIAS Directorate, I finished my book Frankrijk in oorlog, 1870-1962 [France at War, 1870-1962], which will be published in September 2006 by Bert Bakker, Amsterdam. I also wrote a number of articles that are now in the press. For the publications that came out during that year I refer to the attached list of publications.
