The book concludes with an account and analysis of the last years of the General’s presidency. Increasingly isolated after the electoral triumph in June 1968, which revealed the increasing popularity of Pompidou, de Gaulle announced his final departure from the political scene after his defeat in the 27 April 1969 referendum.
