Lead: The liberation of Paris in August 1944, indeed that of all of France, came after years of planning and an alliance of many forces. How the story was told depended on your point of view.

Content: The Free French under Charles De Gaulle, the Resistance, the Allied high command and French collaborators each had a narrative about the final days of the German occupation of France in World War II. Each had motives for pumping up the importance of their own contribution. In the end, however, it took them all to do it.
