Among the numerous collections concerning France, many relate to its experiences in the two world wars, including US military operations in the country. For World War II, there are papers of prominent Vichy government officials and collections documenting the French resistance movement. Other collections cover the Algerian war, the presidency of Charles de Gaulle, and the student revolt of May 1968.
