Geoffrey Adams argues that the creation of La France libre and its assumption of power constitute a major turning point in modern French history. Charles de Gaulle was both the representative of a predominantly Catholic France and leader of the republican cause. By attracting key personalities from the nation's three religious families - Catholics, Jews, and Protestants - to the Free French banner, he created a precedent-setting coalition based on political ecumenism. Following the liberation of Paris, his provisional government was recognized by France's ecclesiastical and political establishments - reuniting the Two Frances (revolutionary and counter-revolutionary), which had been in conflict since the l790s. Adams examines the contributions of such major Francais libres as Rene Cassin, Pierre Mendes France, and Jacques Soustelle and explores de Gaulle's troubled relations with Churchill and Roosevelt.
