Comments[edit]

"When war was declared in 1939, he became the youngest general in French history"

What ? He was 50 then; Hoche was made a general at 25 ! Rama 09:40, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Why is there no picture? There must be some record of him? ````Jtflood1976

Sources[edit]

There are lots and lots of sources out there about this person. He is a major figure in recent French military history. For now, I'm putting two more obscure sources that I found while looking for information on his son: Jean De Lattre, Ma Raison De Vivre (1978) is a book by his widow. Details are here. She also wrote a two-volume work Jean de Lattre: Mon Mari (1971-2). Details here. Carcharoth (talk) 12:09, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
