Biography

Born at Mouilleron-en-Pareds (Vendée), de Lattre de Tassigny graduated from school in 1911 (5th of his promotion in Saint-Cyr), fought in World War I and was wounded twice. He specialized in cavalry, and was made head of the French War College in 1935. After World War I he served as an officer in the French headquarters during the Rif War.

He entered General Weygand's headquarters in 1932 (who had the choice between de Lattre and de Gaulle and choose de Lattre because of his superior rank and honors), and then served in the headquarters of an infantry regiment at Metz.
