Jonathan Fenby discusses his new biography, The General: Charles de Gaulle and the France He Saved, released in July 2012 to stellar reviews in The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times: "The General isn't just the story of a 20th-century giant who captivated the public's imagination even while he was still alive. It also traces the course of a great nation that refused to come to terms with the loss of the strategic pre-eminence it had once enjoyed." Fenby is a British author and former editor of The Observer of London.
