New Statesman: 26th July 2010 "Fenby is superlatively good at turning a mass of facts into a clear, well-paced narrative that will be immediately accessible to readers" Times Higher Education: 29th July 2010 " The most thorough and the most enjoyable since France's Jean Lacouture."

De Gaulle has been written about many times before, but those with time in their lives for only one book about the general could happily make it this one' Lord Christopher Patten, The Spectator 31/7 'Excellent' Reader's Digest, August Issue 'Revealing...he writes movingly...gripping...It's certainly the best biography of de Gaulle to have been written in English' TLS, 3/7 'The book is pacy and readable...such a great tale deserves retelling and has not been better told in English before. One striking feature of Fenby's account is to show de Gaulle's human side, which is unfamiliar, because he kept his personal and public lives strictly separate' Guardian 7/8 'There have been many biographies of de Gaulle...but the great merit of Jonathan Fenby's book...is due not only to his scrupulous research but also that he lived in France as bureau chief for The Economist and Reuters' The Tablet 7/7 'Full, clear, French-sourced and excellent' Tribune 6/8 'How often do you re-arrange the furniture of your mind? The one made me ponder the present state, history and future of a great country' The Field September, 2010 'De Gaulle always maintained that a non-French biographer could never hope to fully understand him. This superb book has finally proved him wrong' Sunday Business Post 15/8 'The best English biography of de Gaulle' The Oldie, Autumn issue 2010

Reseña del editor:

No leader of modern times was more unique and more uniquely national than Charles de Gaulle. As founder and first President of the Fifth Republic, General de Gaulle saw himself 'carrying France on my shoulders'. When he first emerged on to the world stage in 1940, his insistence that he spoke for his nation might well have appeared impossibly arrogant for a recently promoted junior general who had never been elected to anything. But he personified many of the traits of his country which fascinate the rest of the world - its pride in itself, its intransigence, its historical and cultural heritage and its quasi-religious belief in the state. Le General, as he became known from 1940 on, appeared as if carved from a single monumental block, but was, in fact, extremely complex, a man with deep personal feelings and recurrent mood swings, devoted to his family and often seeking reassurance from those around him. Though insisting on discipline and loyalty from others, he was a great rebel. A grand visionary with a vast geo-political grasp and elephantine memory, he was also a supreme tactician with a taste for secrecy and the ability to out-flank opponents. This is a magisterial, sweeping biography of one of the great leaders of the twentieth century and of the country with which he so identified himself. Written with terrific verve and narrative skill, and yet rigorous and detailed, it brings alive as never before the private man as well as the public leader through exhaustive research and astute analysis.
