The political career of Charles de Gaulle

This project aims to provide a fundamental re-evaluation of the career of Charles de Gaulle, the dominant political figure in 20th-century France. Previous studies have subscribed too much to de Gaulle's presentation of himself as a solitary, heroic figure descending from the heights to "save" the nation in a moment of crisis. The recent opening of massive new archival sources - most importantly de Gaulle's private papers - holds out the possibility of offering a more contextualised and multidimensional interpretation of his political action.
