    No leader of modern times was more uniquely patriotic than Charles de Gaulle. As founder and first president of the Fifth Republic, General de Gaulle saw himself as "carrying France on [his] shoulders." In his 20s, he fought for France in the trenches and at the epic battle of Verdun. In the 1930s, he waged a lonely battle to enable France to better resist Hitler's Germany. Thereafter, he twice rescued the nation from defeat and decline by extraordinary displays of leadership, political acumen, daring, and bluff, heading off civil war and leaving a heritage adopted by his successors of right and left.

    H. Segal says: "Slavishly written, Unreflective but Interesting"
    "Why the "french" accent when De Gaulle is cited?"

    Story

    Great audiobook overall but why on earth when De Gaulle "speaks" the narrator uses a weird french accent? I get using voices in novels to differenciate between characters, but here its really not needed. The book is very long, its very annoying after a while- other than that, great book.
