  • Both Patriotic for their own country,
  • De Gaulle is arrogant, proud and patriotic for his love of France which Churchill respects,
  • November 1944- Paris is liberated and Churchill and de Gaulle walk arm in arm down to Champ Elysee,
  • He is leader of the "Free French" when he goes to London with no country and no resources but Churchill takes him in and respects his love for France,

  • French Naval Fleet in 1940 in Mediterranean- Churchill wants the French to unite with Britain but the De Gaulle and France refuse,
  • Churchill destroys French Naval Fleet in 1940,
