When Charles de Gaulle left occupied France for London in June 1940 he was a little-known junior general. Blending forensic detail and narrative skill, Fenby's epic biography explores the influences and experiences that gave de Gaulle the vision and self-belief to assume the leadership of his country in exile and preside over its post-war reconstruction. It reveals a complex man of deep feelings, a rebel who demanded unswerving loyalty, and a cunning tactician who repeatedly outmanouevred his rivals.
