Philippe Berthelot

By Auguste Bréal

Gallimard, 1937, 245 pp.

As Secretary General of the French Foreign Office and hence chief of its permanent staff, Berthelot was for many years the man who really directed French foreign policy. From Bréal's biography we discover that he was diligent, intensely patriotic, completely sure of himself and his policy. A readable and on the whole reliable book.
