The leader of the Free French forces and perhaps the greatest Frenchman of the 20th Century is the subject of today’s episode. Charles de Gaulle.
Today we look at a man who was both similar and different to the subject of our last podcast, Ho Chi Minh. De Gaulle was a strong-willed, fiery character and he was very nationalistic. And as well as leading the Free French forces during World War 2, he would later take on another very important role. He even started his own political creed, and also caused major disputes with his Cold War allies in the 1960s.
