This review is from: Mitterrand: A Study in Ambiguity (Hardcover)
This is a first class book based both on a wide and deep knowledge of all that has written about Mitterrand and first hand experience of his time as President when the author was the BBC Paris correspondent. His narrative flows like a novel, there are many small anecdotes that illustrate his story, an insightful description of his family background, and his complicated private life. There is an excellent assessment of Mitterrand's achievements and failures, his relationship with de Gaulle. and his dealings other political figures in post-war France.
