    1. In an attempt to look outside of North America, I sought to educate myself about a man who played a key role in the European Theatre during the Second World War and in the decades thereafter. Having already looked at Churchill and Hitler, it is time to wade into Don Cook's world of General Charles de Gaulle. In this detailed biographical piece, Cook seeks not only to tell the story of de Gaulle's life, but portray the man in three distinct fashions, which are elucidated throughout the numerous c [...]

    2. VERY slow going. It got really interesting just over half way through. I cannot imagine the amount of research that went into this painstaking writing. It was way too much for a biography, I thought. It dwelt quite a lot on WWII. I did really enjoy learning about the unbelievably childish pride spats with FDR, his relationships with JFK and Lyndon B. Johnson. I also thought his actions regarding the Six Days War were really interesting. Probably most interesting of all to me were his addresses t [...]

    3. I enjoyed reading this biography of a man I never knew but whose life had impacted a lot of recent history. Don Cook does a good balancing job of highlighting his strengths and weaknesses. General Charles de Gaulle, by the sheer force of his conviction and courage, came to represent all Frenchmen who would never surrender to the Germans as they took over France and her government in 1940. De Gaulle was the right man at the right time to unite The French Empire and fight for her interests. I was [...]

    4. It is not at all difficult to understand the sentiment of "What an asshole!" when the subject of de Gaulle comes up. However, there is a passage in the book where Churchill is advised of some recent exchange regarding de Gaulle that came up prior to D-Day 1944. Churchill sputters for a bit and is on the verge of adding to the conversation with an appropriate negative comment, and is then reported to have said, " yes, he is a great man." Someone as single-minded as de Gaulle would surely be diffi [...]

    5. The author does not wait patiently until readers can form an own opinion about the character of the formidable general but instead starts with the proposition that all his subject did was to work towards a position of power for the benefit of his country (according to his own views): a single-minded, nationalist authoritarian with a higher goal in life. Still, somehow the person remains abstract or even vague; if this is reflection on the character of De Gaulle and not a limitation of the author [...]

    6. 戴高乐这个人,成也萧何,败也萧何。假如不是那么高傲和刚愎自用,在法国全面溃败背后没有国力支持时,撑不起表面作为独立存在的自由法国,没有他毫无根据的固执,法国作为战后势力的地位会下降很多,虽然独裁,但因此消灭党派之争,在法国恢复国力的时代保持了政府行政管理的稳定连续。可是,因为高傲而完全不认错,一旦真的错了也就错到见了黄河心也不死的 [...]

    7. Extremely slow but his story is so engaging during the key historic moments of Europe and the world that it keeps you committed to finishing it.

    8. after such book, seems time to be frozen!!!splendid reading, another great Son of the world' HISTORY!why Ukraine still doesn't give the birth for such hero, our land is bleeding in a WAIT!!!
