sibly break with General de Gaulle within the coming several days."43 It was arguably the most difficult moment in the relations between de Gaulle and Roosevelt, and this relationship will be the subject of the next chapter. The rupture between the Free French and the United States never took place because down deep, beneath the moving sands, the opinion of the French in Algeria and in France was in the process of swinging in favor of de Gaulle. Perhaps de Gaulle, who seemed to admire the formula--audacity in words and prudence in actions 44--did not know on June 19, 1943, how close he was to the abyss.
