Synopsis: French Text

General de Castelnau (1851-1944) was one of the greatest French leaders of the First World War. This Aveyronnais started his career as a second lieutenant in 1870, to end as Commanding General of the Army Group. Nicknamed the ?Savior of Nancy?, he defeated the Germans in Lorraine and particularly Charmes and Grand Couronne. He then lead the Battle of Champagne before becoming General Joffre?s Chief of Staff, in other words, the number two of the French army.

He later became a member of the Aveyron, a member of the Institute and President of the National Catholic Federation, a powerful and influential gathering of hundreds of thousands during the interwar period.

This biographical album features 600 exceptional documents and photographs on the general, accompanied by blurbs and explanatory captions.
