The American Gaullist League is for those with an interest in modern French politics, history and the like. Our particular area of interest revolves around the life and times of General Charles de Gaulle b .1890, d. 1970. De Gaulle was a military man by training, serving in the French Army up until end of the Second World War. He went on to remake France and her political structure, bringing stability and a renewed patriotism to a country that lost much during Second World War. General de Gaulle would then serve as President of France from 1959 - 1969. The General was a devoted patriot and family man. His life is what we should gauge our leaders of today by. Despite the odds stacked against him and his country, General de Gaulle survived and even thrived. France today owes a great deal to de Gaulle and his legacy. So if you like France or even if you do not, lets chat, exchange ideas and go from there. I interpret France through a Gaullist lens if you will. The French are more than wine and cheese.
