Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Charles de Gaulle, saviour of France's honour in 1940 and founder of the Fifth Republic in 1958, was a man of contradictions. A conservative who brought the communists into his government and an imperialist who completed France's decolonisation in Algeria.

Synopsis:

This volume forms part of the "Life and Times" series of compact and accessible biographies which cover key political, literary and musical figures. This title is about the life and work of French politician Charles de Gaulle.

Synopsis:

Charles de Gaulle (1890-1970), savior of France's honor in 1940 and founder of the Fifth Republic in 1958, was a deeply contradictory politician. A conservative and a Catholic, from a monarchist family, he restored democracy in 1944 and brought the Communists into his government. An imperialist in the 1940s, he completed France's decolonization in the 1960s. A soldier, he spent much of his career opposing the army. Yet, as Julian Jackson shows, it was precisely because of these contradictions that De Gaulle was able to reconcile so many of the conflicting strands in French politics and, for the first time since the Revolution, provide France with a universally accepted political system.

Synopsis:

Accessible and affordable illustrated biography

Synopsis:

Examines the complexities of the man who provided France with a universally accepted political system
