My family and I were fortunate to do a walking tour with Nigel before the Great Lockdown. While a Zoom conversation is not the same as walking through the streets of Paris with him, it is a pretty good alternative for the time being. This is due to the fact that Nigel’s deep knowledge and passion for the topic of France during the Nazi occupation shines through, even in the Conversation format. He is a terrific teacher.

This is such a substantial (verbal) walk through August 1944 leading up to the liberation, day by day, hour by hour, story by story, document by document. I would love to take Perrin's walk tour and see all the bullet holes.
This was a well-organized look at the key people, including those of the resistance, and the timeline between D-Day and the Liberation of Paris. It deepened my understanding of history and provided me a list of important places to visit next time I'm in Paris. I highly recommend this and other courses taught by Dr. Perrin.
Nigel makes history comes alive. His sessions are filled with human interest stories and anecdotes, unexpected facts and a deep background in Nazi Paris. It's a great series!
