The Other de Gaulle - Claude Mauriac

Angus & Robertson, 1973, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Good+ DJ. DJ a little sunned at the spine and margins of the wraps.

Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “From these journals, kept since he started working with the General, we find in Claude Mauriac the genuine criticism ofa young man — he was twenty four at the time — torn between hero-worship and a sensitive, liberal conscience which now and then rebelled against the autocracy of his hero. This shows itself most clearly during the trials of Petain, Laval and their collaborators. But of course what we find here and nowhere else are de Gaulle’s hitherto unrecorded pronouncements and opinions on innumerable subjects, both important and trivial, together with intimate glimpses of him at home during his ‘exile’, and these give this book its particular flavour and interest.”
