Critical acclaim for The Last Great Frenchman "This is a splendid popular biography . . . recounted with verve and anecdotal warmth, along with fresh appraisals of de Gaulle's career as soldier, politician, and head of state." --Publishers Weekly. "Highly readable. . . . It is to Williams' credit that he is able to get so close to such a prickly personality." --San Francisco Chronicle "Charles Williams has matched a great subject by something near to a great book." --Daily Telegraph (London) "Marvelous vignettes. . . . Williams tells his story with pace and skill." --Martin Gilbert
