In 1963, General De Gaulle vetoed Britain's bid to join the Common Market, delaying entry by a decade and hastening the downfall of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan. This gripping history traces the difficult relationship between the canny English pragmatist and the lofty French moralist described by the Foreign Office as an 'almost impossible ally'. It is a fascinating, touching and at times comical story of a friendship forged in the heat of war turned sour by peacetime politics.
