In The Burden of Victory, author Laird Kleine-Ahlbrandt discusses French-British relations in the period following the First World War. He looks at how the fear of German power fostered an Anglo-French cooperation that lasted until the end of World War I. With this background, discussions focus on the post-war domestic pressures and tensions that affected the Anglo-French association and contributed to its decline. The Burden of Victory is an incomparable one-volume treatment of such a topic, a topic that has particular relevance in the light of recent Anglo-French concern about Germany's role in Europe after its reunification.
