The essay explores the French attitude toward the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the United States. This is done by focusing on Charles deGaulles personality and leadership. Research methods included a search of prominent newspaper and magazine articles of the time span involved, along with a study of books and deGaulles own writings and speeches. The author concludes that the motives of France were in actuality deGaulles. Although a personal grudge on the part of deGaulle could become suspect, a more plausible explanation for his actions is that deGaulle pressed his own personal feelings of destiny upon France because he felt such a strong sense of devotion to restoring her honor and status as a world power. Pulling France out of NATO was only one step in this restoration.
