Charles de Gaulle is the leader of the French Resistance starting in 1940. After the arrival of the Zheronians, de Gaulle took the resistance into the countryside of Occitania, making small attacks on Reich and Vichy France shipping.
In 1951, however, the Resistance hijacked the Vichy France ship Revolution Nationale, and rechristened it the Free French Ship Georges Clemenceau. On the Clemenceau, de Gaulle led the resistance to harass Reich shipping, but refused to attack Zheronian shipping in fear of retaliation. Nevertheless, the Resistance under de Gaulle became a renowned group of Space Pirates. de Gaulle continued the fight after receiving stolen cybernetic augmentation in 1956.
