Charles Mangin, French soldier, 1918. Artist: Unknown

Charles Mangin, French soldier, 1918. Mangin was a general in the French Army during the First World War. Nicknamed the Butcher by his troops, he was a supporter of the strategy of General Robert Nivelle, which led to enormous casualties during the Nivelle Offensive of 1917 and the widespread mutinies that followed it. Removed from command, he was later recalled and commanded the 10th Army which played a vital role in stopping the German advance and launching the Allied counter-attack at the Second Battle of the Marne in July-August 1918.

Emile Zola, French novelist, with his family, 1899. Artist: Unknown Featured 18 May 2009 Print

Emile Zola, French novelist, with his family, 1899. Artist: Unknown

Emile Zola, French novelist, with his family, 1899. An influential writer, Zola (1840-1902) was also an important figure in the liberalisation of French society at the end of the 19th century. He staunchly defended Alfred Dreyfus, a Jewish French Army officer wrongly accused of treason, a case that polarised French politics and society. In 1898 Zola wrote a famous letter titled J'accuse that was published on the front page of the newspaper L'Aurore. Tried and convicted of criminal libel, he was sentenced to a year's imprisonment and removed from the Legion d'Honneur, but escaped to exile in London, where he remained until July 1899. He died three years later from carbon monoxide poisoning caused by a blocked chimney, and suspicion abounded that he had been murdered by his political enemies.
