    I would recommend 'England's Last War Against France'
    England's Last War Against France: Fighting Vichy 1940-1942: Colin Smith: 9780753827055: Amazon.com: Books

    Not strictly about Vichy France but gives a very good background to government and the impact on the French colonies.

    Have you read Robert O. Paxton, Vichy France: Old Guard and New Order, 1940-1944 (2001) and Susan Juccotti The Holocast, The French, and the Jews (1993)? Dwight

    Two I would recommend are:

    Charles Williams biography of Petain and also Petain's Crime by Paul Webster, about Vichy collaboration in the Holocaust.

    Hope this helps.

    "Hitlers War" by D. Irwing is a good source as well. The book is from 1977 and from before he got controversial.

    There are also some decent videos on Youtube concerning the Vichy Gov't, Petain, Laval, etc...
    Just in case you weren't aware of them..

    This film is on the Life in Clermond Ferrand with Frenchs Germans, pro Vichy and against, French SS Christian de la Mazières.
    Very long and I know you have one English version. Woody Allen like it.
