French politician Édouard Daladier

Édouard Daladier (June 18, 1884 - October 10, 1970) was a French politician, and Prime Minister of France at the start of the Second World War.

He was born in Carpentras. A government minister in various posts during the coalition governments between 1924 and 1928, he was instrumental in the Radical Party's break with the Socialists in 1926 and with the conservative Raymond Poincaré in November 1928.

Daladier became a leading member of the Radicals. He first became Prime Minister during 1933, and then again in 1934 for a few weeks during the right wing rioting of that year, which led to the left's fall from power. He became Minister of War for the Popular Front coalition in 1936, and became Prime Minister again on April 10, 1938 after the fall of the Popular Front. His term in power saw the Munich Agreement, when France backed out of its obligations to defend Czechoslovakia. In 1939 after the German invasion of Poland he was reluctant to go to war, but did so on September 3, 1939. In March 1940 he resigned as Prime Minister in France, due to his failure to aid Finland's defense during the Phony War and was replaced with Paul Reynaud. He fled to Morocco, but was arrested and tried for treason by the Vichy government. He was a German prisoner until the end of the war.

After the war, he was a member of the Chamber of Deputies, and an opponent of Charles de Gaulle. He died in Paris.
