After classifying Charles de Gaulle’s writings, it goes into the facets of the intellectual and moral figure and his personality as a practicing catholic. The second part, entitled "the general's anthology", identifies all the allusions to classical writings from antiquity to the present day. It tries to recognize the influence of classical thinkers, more specifically Greek tragic authors and Latin poets, as well as that of Shakespeare, of 17th century French authors, of 18th century moralists, with chateaubriand and the romantic authors. a detailed study is made of the intellectual guides of Charles de Gaulle as a young man : Bergson, Barrès, Péguy, Psichari, Nietzsche as well as the authors commonly read by those of his generation. Encounters with contemporary authors confirm certain likings and affinities. The last chapters deal with the literary genres that Charles de Gaulle valve and practiced as a writer. An analysis is made of his ideas the domains of history, philosophy, politics, sociology and arts
