For the rest of the war, de Gaulle frequently bit the hand that fed him.
He insisted on being treated as the true embodiment of France, and quarrelled violently with Churchill and Roosevelt. He was prickly, stubborn, aloof and self-contained. But through sheer force of personality and bloody-mindedness he managed to have France recognised as one of the victorious Allies, occupying its own zone in defeated Germany. His controversial decolonization of Algeria brought France to the brink of civil war and provoked several assassination attempts.
It draws on a vast range of published and unpublished memoirs and documents — including the recently opened de Gaulle archives — to show how de Gaulle achieved so much during the War when his resources were so astonishingly few, and how, as President, he put a medium-rank power at the centre of world affairs.
