A rare eyewitness account by an important author of fleeing the Nazis march on Paris in 1940. This is the first ever English publication of important French author Leon Werth. Restored here with the original introduction, long thought to be lost, by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, author of The Little Prince. 33 DAYS is Werth's memoir of l'exode (the exodus) during the fall of France to the Nazi forces. With poetic economy and journalistic precision, Werth recounts his experiences as one of the estimated 8 million civilians who fled the advancing German army's invasion of France.
