“This book is a study of the reign of Louis XIV, showing the political leadership that France enjoyed in Europe during his reign.  It also shows the unity that this King gave to the French people after generations of civil wars.  Those Englishmen, Frenchmen and Americans who today stroll again in peace through the gardens of Versailles – that city from which General Eisenhower directed the final assault upon Hitler’s Germany – may share too in the consciousness of the continuing glory of France which Louis XIV once represented.”
