Example text

He described the many happy hours he spent listening to him tell stories of what life was like living under Nazi occupation, heroic stories of the French resistance, and most especially, tales of his personal hero, General Charles de Gaulle, and stories of liberation from Nazi rule. CHARLES DE GAULLE AND LOVE OF COUNTRY To many French citizens, Charles de Gaulle (November 22, 1890–November 9, 1970) represented the best of French strength and patriotism. The leader of the Free French government-in-exile during Nazi occupation, de Gaulle became the head of the French provisional government from 1946 to 1949 and ultimately served as France’s first president of the Fifth Republic from 1958 to 1969.

It was a time to act; he wanted power, he wanted to join the government. “I wanted to join the government so badly that I had no trouble convincing Chirac to accept this, and I entered the government as minister for the budget,” he stated in Testimony. Taking a Risk MINISTER OF BUDGET Sarkozy spent the next two years as Balladur’s minister for the budget. It was, as he said, his first real taste of power. It was also another learning experience.

He had started literally at the bottom, sweeping floors and putting up posters. By the age of 20, however, he was already a party organizer for the Union of Democrats for the Republic, a Gaullist party of France from 1971 to 1976. (It is important to understand that unlike in the United States, where political parties are long-lasting and stable, French political parties tend to change names and reorganize, even while their basic political positions remain the same. The UDR was the successor to Charles de Gaulle’s earlier party, Rally of the French People.
