France: Rebellion within the High Command

Winner, Percy
October 1955
New Republic;10/17/55, Vol. 133 Issue 16, p6
The article focuses on the Fourth French Republic which is being ripped apart at the seams. The sound of the tearing was plainly audible during the National Assembly debate on Edgar Faure's policy in North Africa. The formal issue in that debate was confidence in the present French government; the real issues were the continued existence of the present republican and democratic French state, and the nature of a different--militarized if not dictatorial--state role in the defense of the West and the free world.
