Charles de Gaulle: The Man Who Predicted Brexit

£8/£7 concession

Historian Julian Jackson’s magnificent biography reveals the life of the greatest French leader since Napoleon. He explores how World War Two general, Charles de Gaulle, became President of France’s Fifth Republic, challenged US dominance, took France out of NATO and brought his nation to the brink of civil war. He provoked several assassination attempts and twice vetoed Britain’s entry into the EEC, saying with remarkable insight that Britain could never be a happily integrated European power. Julian Jackson tells the remarkable life story of the man who predicted Brexit.
