Biography

Marshal of France who became a leading Free French commander in World War II.

The son of a policeman in Algeria, Juin was educated at the military academy of Saint-Cyr and, during World War I, served as captain with Moroccan forces and later as chief of staff to Marshal L.-H.-G. Lyautey. A division commander during the Battle of France in June 1940, he was taken prisoner by the Germans and was released a year later. On Nov. 20, 1941, the Vichy government named him marshal and chief of the French forces in North Africa, replacing General Maxime Weygand. Although compelled to oppose the Allied landings there in November 1942, he quickly switched to the Allied side and subsequently commanded the Free French forces in Tunisia and Italy, leading them into Rome in June 1944.

Juin was appointed commander in chief of the NATO forces in central Europe in 1951. The following year he was made a marshal of France. In 1960, because of his French Algerian origins, he broke with his longtime friend President Charles de Gaulle in protest over the government’s Algerian policy. Juin retired in 1962 with the rank of general.

He died 27 January 1967.
