I've decided on making the French my primary weapon against 1. e4 after having not much success with the Najdorf. I recently purchased Simon Williams 2 DVD's on the French and enjoyed them greatly. But now I'm looking for some books to fill in the gaps.
If any French players could recommend a number of books that would give a complete repertoire that would be greatly appreciated.
Attacking Chess: The French by Simon Williams
The French Defence: A Complete Black Repertoire by Nikita Vitiugov
How to Play Against 1 e4 by Neil McDonald
Play the French by John Watson
Another good book on the French, but from the approach as a middle game book rather than an opening manual, is Tactics in the French by Gennady Nesis. It gives you an idea on what to do after the opening is over.
"The 2nd Millionaire Chess Tournament - Round 2"
I know the openings, but when to use them?
