Short biography
Maurice Druon was considered a hero of the French Resistance in World War II for co-writing (with his uncle Joseph Kessel) the "Chant des Partisans," the song that became the anthem of the movement. After the war, he was one his country's most successful and eminent literary figures, tirelessly working to save the French language from what he considered the corrosive effects of global English, colloquialisms, and political correctness.
