Two giants of the twentieth century ...

Phillipe Pétain, a tough, uncompromising soldier who rose through the ranks to save France in 1916 Battle of Verdun

Charles de Gaulle, the aristocratic, academic and equally uncompromising soldier who led France to freedom

These giants of the twentieth century loved each other like father and son

Until they found themselves on opposing sides in World War II when Pétain became a Nazi collaborator

Their complex relationship - noble, comic and absurd - changed history

Now - in 1945 - de Gaulle has his oldest friend tried for treason

The Patriotic Traitor tells the extraordinary story of these great men as Pétain awaits his verdict
