Charles de Gaulles Vision of France At the end of World War II many European countries were damaged politically socially and economically due to the invasion of Germany Europe was in pieces and many people thought that it would never recover from such a devastating blow However during these hard times in search of hope and a better future European countries pushed onward towards massive recovery and restoration of power During this period a man by the name of Charles de Gaulle became a leader of the French people He envisioned France to become recognized as a great power as it once was in the past and he would lead his country into its new future De Gaulle was seen as a leader of France during World War II but he disappointedly declined gaining government authority during the 1940s Finally in 1958 de Gaulle came back to power with great expectations to establish Frances independence and to restore France as a world power however his dreams fell short to reality Charles de Gaulle was born in 1890 and grew up in Lille His father had a great impact towards his life which helped develop de Gaulles great patriotism for his country Growing up as a child Charles was always smart and was a very good student Instead of going to a polytechnic college he went to a French military school because of the passion he had for his country He fought in the trenches during World War I and made his way through the ranks to General during World War II During this time in disgust with his French leaders for not fighting the Germans de Gaulle refused to surrender and fled to Great Britain Soon after the fall of France in 1940 leaflets were published signed by a virtually unknown brigadier general France has lost a battle it has not lost the war De Gaulle had not given up the fight
