In the Shadow of the General
- Modern France and the Myth of De Gaulle
- By: Sudhir Hazareesingh
- Narrated by: Alain Patry
- Length: 9 hrs and 24 mins
Charles De Gaulle's leadership of the French while in exile during World War II cemented his place in history. In contemporary France, he is the stuff of legend, consistently acclaimed as the nation's pre-eminent historical figure. But paradoxes abound. For one thing, his personal popularity sits oddly with his social origins and professional background. Neither the Army nor the Catholic Church is particularly well-regarded in France today, as they are seen to represent antiquated traditions and values.
Good content, questionable narration
