    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"
    "Wonderful content terrible Narration"

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Well researched and comprehensive


    Any additional comments?

    Narrator De Gaulle sounds like Pepe la Pu and Churchill sounds like he's from Texas. It's distracting and annoying.
