Photograph signed by France's most admired politician of the 20th century, Charles de Gaulle, hero of the Second World War.

Photograph signed by Charles de Gaulle. 9cm x 14cm. No date. Excellent condition. Single piece.

General Charles de Gaulle (1890 - 1970) was France's most important politician of the 20th century. It was during the Second World War that he became a national figure when, from London, with Winston Churchill, he rejected the signing of the armistice with the Nazis and gave his famous speech to the French on BBC radio on 18 June 1940, encouraging the resistance against German troops.

After the war Charles de Gaulle founded the French Fifth Republic of which he was the first President from 1959 to 1969. He managed to put an end to political chaos, controlled inflation, created a new currency, stimulated industrial growth, granted independence to former French colonies and developed nuclear weapons, with the aim of ridding France of military dependence on the Americans and the British.

Charles de Gaulle is one of the great historical personalities of the 20th century that collectors are actively looking for. Furthermore, this old photograph, autographed by the head of state, is still in perfect condition.
