The subject of this study is De Gaulle’s vision of foreign policy and international relations. The concept “Grandeur de la France” indicates that de Gaulle’s foreign policy was exclusively concerned with great power politics. However, the majority of states that France had to deal with were minor and middle powers. On these grounds, Olav Riste discusses what place these states occupied in de Gaulle’s view of international relations.
