Charles de Gaulle is one of the few who has the strength not to admit defeat, to look into the future and see in the fragmented France of that time tomorrow a great force, and in the destroyed army one of the victorious armies. He is a man who gives to the French, humiliated by the catastrophe, insulted by the allies, disarmed by his cowardice or adaptation, the self-esteem of the fighters. After Liberation, he became chief of the government from 1944-1946. The General laid the foundation for a new life in all directions. His name is associated with the creation of the Fifth Republic in 1958. The politics of the General resulted in the solution of the Algerian problem, decolonization, the construction of an independent foreign policy of untied hands, as a result of which the country withdraws from the NATO military organization and demands that the United States raise its bases from the territory of France. He owns the notorious copy of "on a united Europe from the Atlantic to the Urals" and the policy of mutual understanding with Eastern Europe at the height of the Cold War.
