This chapter argues that the Vichy regime is a significant part of French and French republican history. It begins by discussing how Vichy emerged from the ruins of a Republic that had proved unable to avoid a catastrophic military debacle. From there, the chapter provides a historical overview of the Vichy regime, split into four periods, from July 1940 to the regime's gradual decline into an ordinary police state in August 1944. Despite its being relegated to another episode in national memory, Vichy itself continues to persist in the later years—the Fourth Republic, for instance, was in some ways shaped by men who had participated in Vichy before taking their distance from the regime.
