What an amazing life and effort! France's "Don Quixote". Never gave up in his "quest" of liberating France and restoring her grandeur. Literary quality everyone compares to Winston Churchill's memoirs. Sure, a little egotistical, but what honesty and no resulting dictatorship.
It is a little confusing when he alternately refers to himself in the 1st person AND in the 3rd person throughout the book; I have never seen that style. Can anyone educate me?
I wished the book had more than 3 little maps (easier to locate oneself) and more photos than the cover page (maybe the individual 3 book version has). Also I did not see any sources or acknowledgements (but maybe THAT is de Gaulle!)
----- My Favorite Exchange -----
Churchill (to de Gaulle): "You claim to be France! You are not France! I do not recognize you as France!"
De Gaulle to Churchill: "If, in your eyes, I am not the representative of France, why and with what right are you dealing with me concerning her world-wide interests?" Mr. Churchill did not reply.
