The French Statesman Charles de Gaulle fought an incident in this war, founding a political regime in modernity whose principles transcended modern political philosophy. De Gaulle rejected both bourgeois democracy and anti-bourgeois totalitarianism, framing a republicanism hospitable to civic responsibility and human greatness. Reflections on De Gaulle, first published in 1983, remains the only book centered on textual interpretation of each of de Gaulles major works, themselves Chapter of his lifelong enterprise to bring a stable republican government to France. Will Morrisey examines de Gaulles works, from La discorde chez lennemi, his incisive critique of the German elites quasi-Nietzschean overreaching in the First World War, to MZmoires despoir, his magisterial account of the founding of the Fifth Republic. The text has been corrected and entirely reset in an attractive format for greater ease of use.
