At the Heart of a Tiger: Clemenceau and His World, 1841-1929
"In old age [Clemenceau] retired to the Vendée, to grow flowers by the sea, and write books about Demosthenes and Claude Monet, one of this closests friends. The account of his last years reads like a chapter from Colette. Gregor Dallas has written a remarkable book, full of sounds, sights and aroma of France he clearly adores. In as much as Clemenceau more than any other man represented the spirit of that most French regimes, the Third Republic, this story of his life and times is a record not only of a hero, but of the country he inhabited and the society in which he moved. It is wonderfully detailed and unfailingly acute; a book about a politician which is far more than a book about politics... Dallas sometimes assumes knowledge that many readers will lack. They should not deterred. They will acquire knowledge as they read and find infinite delight on the journey.” - Allan Massie, Daily Telegraph.
