Years ago I read the three-volume War Memoirs of Charles de Gaulle, and I noticed some important issues, but having read some 47 WWII books by famous authors I got bored with the subject and I didn't follow-up on them. In the memoirs, as you might have read, de Gaulle portrays Sir Winston Churchill as a Machiavellian, opportunist and untrustworthy. Despite some actions that restrained their relationship, like de Gaulle mentioning a desperate Churchill asking for 100 aircraft at the final phases of WWI, which he provided, but Churchill refusing 40 aircraft request by a desperate de Gaulle at the beginning of WWII, he was happy with the English supporting the Free France cause. But as the war progressed, he mentions some stunning instances like when the British sent Free French Forces against their turncoat brothers without support, or ordering them to withstand German encirclement in Africa, promising relief but fleeing en masse via ship transport, and several more instances. Churchill on the other hand wrote in the second volume of his history of WWII: "He felt it was essential to his position before the French people that he should maintain a proud and haughty demeanour towards "perfidious Albion", although in exile, dependent upon our protection and dwelling in our midst. He had to be rude to the British to prove to French eyes that he was not a British puppet. He certainly carried out this policy with perseverance." Who is right? Sir Winston Churchill? or the British were really betraying the French?
