Although General Charles De Gaulle commanded 400,000 Free French soldiers, President Roosevelt insisted they not be told the date of the invasion because he intended to occupy France. In doing so, Roosevelt would be able to open France to big American businesses and keep in office those who had run the country for Hitler.

This would have sparked a civil war, but De Gaulle outwitted Washington to head the first government of liberated France. It wasnt long after that, disgusted with the professional politicians, he resigned in 1946. Then, in 1958, to save France from civil war a second time, he was elected President of the Republic. De Gaulle continued to be a thorn in American presidents sides, following with Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon.

Drawing on hitherto unpublished and revealing material from the archives in Paris and Washington, this thought-provoking account of defiance and rejection of foreign domination is a must-read for all history buffs.
