    PDF/EPUB Professor of History Julian Jackson BSCFT é De Gaulle PDF ↠ é gaulle free, De Gaulle MOBIThis book well deserves all the praise it's been receiving I'm old enough to remember de Gaulle as being often in the news when I was growing up but a shade too young to have understood why he was so newsworthy other than that he apparently relished annoying the US This book shows what was special about him warts and all without hagiographyMany readers may learn here as I did that his youngest child had Down's syndrome and that he was devoted to her throughout her 20 years

    PDF/EPUB Professor of History Julian Jackson BSCFT é De Gaulle PDF ↠ é gaulle free, De Gaulle MOBIThis long and thorough biography is enjoyable and fills in a lot I did not know about him I have had the common American impression that he was a pest and had little to offer other than a sort of French narcissism I like France and have been there many times but did not appreciate de Gaulle Ironically it was Conrad Black's biography of Nixon that got me interested Nixon and de Gaulle liked each other and saw things in a somewhat similar view I thought it was time that I learned about him This is an entertaining if long book and I enjoyed it thoroughly It reminds me a bit of Black's biographies of Nixon and Roosevelt Highly recommended
