André Maginot (1877-1932) : une biographie politique

Abstract : At his research outlines the ways of thinking of a man that belonged to the third generation of republicans, as well as the way he acted politically in the Meuse department where he was continually re-elected after defeating nationalist H. Ferrette in a 1910 dead heat. it mentions his quick parliamentary learning period and, after he was severely wounded in November 1914, the part he played as a member of the Ribot cabinet, backing general Nivelle and choosing abstention in the ratification of the Versailles treaty it shows what part André Maginot played in the occupation of the Ruhr, his struggle against the coalition of 1924 and his early call for a suggested national union. beyond prevailing ideas, the research shows how, in December 1929, André Maginot got the parliament to vote a several-year financial scheme for the fortifications building programmed designed by Paul Painleve, how he chose general Weygand as chief of staff and started reinforcing the country's military equipment while contributing to the definition of France’s position at the so-called conference of disarmament. a large part of this study is devoted to André Maginot’s parliamentary and ministerial action after the first world war (he was in charge of war pensions, of colonies, of war), and refers to the methods of political decision-making (interventions in cabinet meetings, parliamentary tactics, relations with high ranking civil servants and the general staff). Furthermore, this study allows defining more clearly the minister's relations with R. Poincare, G. Clemenceau, A. Millerand and A. Briand. It ends with an analysis of the marks left by André Maginot on the nation's subconscious : from the pink legend to the black legend.
