I'm trying to answer the following question for an essay for French, but I'm rubbish with history, and hardly know anything so I'm finding it really hard!
Anyone got any ideas they can give me to get me going?

To judge from the ease and frequency with which Marshal Pétain used the word 'collaboration' in the first months of the Vichy, it is obvious that he discerned no sinister overtones in the word. How then had 'collaboration' come to signify almost all that was evil by 1944?
