(p.166) 8 Collaboration
France: The Dark Years, 1940–1944

Julian Jackson

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the realities of collaboration between France and Germany from 1940–1944. It identifies three different motives behind voluntary collaboration. First, there was what might be called the politico-administrative motive which aimed to protect French sovereignty. The second motive behind collaboration might be described as politico-diplomatic: to prepare a favourable outcome for France in the peace treaty which was believed to be imminent. The third motive was the need to alleviate the impact of the Armistice on daily life in France.

Keywords:   Jean Moulin, collaboration, Vichy regime, France, Germany
