Political Authorities and the Army

Who decides ? Political authorities or the army ? During the Third and
Fourth Republic, political authorities were very careful not to enter
the “sacred perimeter” of generals, i.e. the conduct of military operations.
Under the influence of General de Gaulle, the Fifth Republic
took a major turn regarding the relations between civil power and
the military authorities. The political order took precedence over the
military order. That the civil power cannot control a single structure
of the Department of Defence is obvious. Yet, the notion that the civil
power would endorse the proposals of the Chiefs of Staff without discussion
does not correspond to reality.
