      "On 11 January , three years almost to the day after the Versailles Peace Treaty went into effect, French and Belgian troops marched into the Ruhr in an effort to collect forcefully the reparations which Germany had pledged in the treaty but failed to deliver. This study examines both the German reaction to the occupation as well as the conflicts within Germany which followed the occupation.   "Operation Chastise is a remarkable book, well in keeping with the impressive track record that Hastings long ago established as an astute chronicler of the human dimension of 20th-century conflict Combining formidable narrative power with equally potent explanatory insight, it situates the Dambusters Raid in the broader strategic context of Brand: HarperCollins Publishers.

This is one of the great untold tragedies of European history which paradoxically contained the seeds of the contemporary.
