About the Author

Of Anglo-Dutch descent, William Mortimer-Moore was born in 1958 and educated at Dean Close School and University College, Cardiff. He has always wanted to write and, after a detour involving advertising copywriting, property, building and a couple of unpublished novels, William decided to address his love of history and France by writing this biography of Leclerc. He lives in Cheltenham in the United Kingdom where he is presently writing a book about Paris during 1944.


Overall, this is an excellent and enjoyable work, well worth a read for anyone with an interest in broadening his or her knowledge of the Second World War or the life of a very interesting and engaging man. * WarStudies Blog - Birmingham 13/11/2012 *
In the 21st Century, not many remember the man, what he stood for, and what he accomplished. Moore demonstrates conclusively that Leclerc truly served as a lion of Free France. Anyone who mocks the French for lack of fighting spirit would do well to read this book about a fine soldier and his men, and learn a little of history. * stonebooks.com *
[The] first full-scale biography in English of the `liberator of Paris.' . . .the descriptions of Leclerc's military strategies and tactics are engaging . . . * Publishers Weekly *
