Item description for De Gaulle (Life&Times) by Julian Jackson...

Capturing all the contradictions that made him a fascinating figure on the world stage, this new biography of Charles De Gaulle retraces his rise to prominence, his powerful struggle against the Nazis during World War II, and his eventual sometimes spotty record as French leader after the war. Original.

Publishers Description
Charles de Gaulle, savior of France's honor and founder of the Fifth Republic, 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 oversaw France's de–colonialization in the 1960s. A soldier, he spent much of his career opposing the army. Yet, 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. Julian Jackson's massive study, France: the Dark Years, was shortlisted for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize.
