Jacques Chaban-Delmas was a major, and somehow singular, political figure of French political life: youngest general of Resistance at the age of 29, early Gaullist, he went into politics after World War II. Emblematic mayor of Bordeaux, President of the national assembly, Mendes-France’s minister, Georges Pompidou’s Prime Minister, unsuccessful candidate in the presidential elections of 1974, this political portrait retraces 50 years of politics in France.
