Description - De Gaulle by Julian Jackson

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 (1890-1970), saviour of France's honour in 1940 and founder of the Fifth Republic in 1958. A deeply contradictory politician, it was 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.
