    This is an epic account of two towering historical figures The many confrontations between these two are outlined in detail It was truly a lovehate relationship Churchill was by far the emotional and could whip himself into an irrational frenzy but as the author points out he had an eternal love for France that superseded the intractability and haughtiness of Charles De GaulleChurchill supported De Gaulle from the very start when he left France in June of 1940 De Gaulle was defiant and the antithesis of those who signed the armistice and collaborated with Germany De Gaulle as Churchill and many others discovered was no puppet to be manipulated He had no ualms saying “Non”Nevertheless the two men despite their innumerable disagreements deep down truly admired each otherPage 375 my book Speech of Charles De Gaulle in Paris on November 11 1944 with Winston Churchill in attendance “It is true that we would not have seen it liberation if our old and gallant ally England and all the British dominions under precisely the impulsion and inspiration of those we are honouring today had not deployed the extraordinary determination to win and that magnificent courage which saved the freedom of the world There is no French man or woman today who is not touched to the depths of their hearts and souls by this”Page 424 Winston Churchill speech on November 6 1958 in Paris “Charles De Gaulle will always be remembered as the symbol of the soul of France and of the unbreakable integrity of her spirit in adversity I remember when I saw him in the sombre days of 1940 I said “Here is the Constable of France’ How well he lived up to that title”The author points out that Churchill was stuck between Roosevelt who detested De Gaulle and his own aspirations to restore France to proper European prominence De Gaulle always overemphasized Anglo Saxon perfidy and conspiracies He never seemed to realize that Churchill was conducting a world war on a vast scale and would encumber him with perceived slights and intrigues like Syria and Lebanon that were minor in comparison to the multitude of issues that both Churchill and Roosevelt were dealing withThis is a wonderful history of these two larger than life figures – and at times hilarious – as neither would back down from their positions They were both so different in temperament – Churchill emotionally upfront De Gaulle austere and glacial and unlike Churchill he could hold a grudge Both were opinionated with a strong sense of history

    I saw this book recommended on FiveBookscom and managed to get an old and tattered copy for just £277 on To say that it is worth its weight in gold is an understatement It is perhaps one of the best history booksdouble biographical books I've ever encountered Kersaudy really succeeds in demonstrating the complex world inhabited by these two great titans of the Second World War and brings their emotions calculations and egos under the historian's microscope Nor does he shy away from letting the primary evidence speak for itself with whole pages given away to lively personal testimonies and extraordinary minutes of meetings where both men dominated discussionsThe relationship between Churchill and de Gaulle with its roots traced firmly back into the darkest days of 1940 was truly an epic partnership whilst simultaneously one of the most bitter rivalries of the Allied war effort It is surprising how focused Kersaudy's book is on the two men Whilst Roosevelt Eden Hull and others feature regularly there is hardly any emphasis on Eisenhower Montgomery George VI Stalin or others Hitler or any other Axis figures hardly get a mention A fantastic book and well recommended
