  • Charles de Gaulle

    I personally think that Charles de Gaulle's military affected his run into French politics because of the war and how it affected other people's lives as well as the lives of others.I personally think that Charles de Gaulle's affected his run into the French politics which affected him because of the people that fought for the country.

  • It definitely had to

    Charles de Gaulle led the French resistance to the Nazis during the Nazi occupation of France during WWII. Considering That the Nazi occupation was one the greatest losses the French suffered in history and he was a popular leader for many years afterward, even during his later years, which were slightly more controversial.

  • He made a name for himself during the war, so yes.

    Yes, I think it's pretty obvious that Charles de Gaulle's military career affected his run into French politics following the war. In the aftermath of World War 2, war veterans and heroes returned home and became leaders of their countries. An equivalent example in America would be the career of Dwight Eisenhower.

  • War heroes win in politics

    Absolutely, anyone who has served in battle, and has had a good military career, is going to be looked up to as a hero, and will easily get voted into a political office. Even today, politicians who have served in a war use this to their advantage when trying to run for office.

  • It was a political record.

    Yes, I think that Charles de Gaulle's military career affected his run into French politics, because his military career was also a political record upon which he was judged. In politics, career politicians and military leaders are the two figure heads most likely to end up head of state. The political career is the same as the military career for the purpose of future politics.
