The Day When...: De Gaulle
De Gaulle
Episode 2  |  The History Channel  |  May 15, 2019

On 16 June 1940 in Bordeaux, a stranger under-secretary of state for war decides to secede and to rebel openly against the policy adopted by the French legal government, which is preparing to ask for an armistice. The following day, he flew to England. This is how a provisional general in a subordinate function will become De Gaulle, leader of Free France, without whom the country would have ended the war in the camp of the vanquished.
