This relationship, noble, comic and absurd, changed history: Philippe Petain, a tough, uncompromising soldier who rose through the ranks to save France in 1916 at the Battle of Verdun, and Charles de Gaulle, the aristocratic, academic, awkward and equally uncompromising soldier who led France to freedom when Petain became a Nazi collaborator.
