François Hollande: the war president

After spending months struggling with the euro, unemployment and a reputation as an indecisive leader, President François Hollande has morphed into General Hollande.

On the set:

  • Philip Turle, Journalist, RFI;
  • Jean-Marc Gonin, Senior Writer, Le Figaro Magazine.
