Jean Hyppolite produced the first French translation of Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit. His major works--the translation, his commentary, and Logique et existence (1953)--coincided with an upsurge of interest in Hegel following World War II.

This commentary is quite comprehensive; which is to say, it's long enough to help one overcome specific difficulties in the text.
