When General David Galtier retired from military service at the end of 2018, he was one of the two highest ranked officers in France’s National Gendarmerie. His rare career trajectory took him to the heart of the Ministries of the Interior and of Defense. As an investigation director, then coordinator, he led an exemplary career in the Gendarmerie, a branch of the French armed forces regularly under high media scrutiny. In a period marked by terrorist threats and urban violence, he speaks of his years of service and recognizes those who continually ensure the security of the people of France.
After recalling the important mission of the Gendarmerie’s judicial police, who form an essential part of France’s armed forces, David Galtier looks back at several emblematic investigations (such as the murder of little Grégory, the Yonne disappearances, and the Omar Raddad affair) to uncover the way in which the Gendarmerie mobilized its capabilities in the midst of dark hours. He takes us behind the scenes of several unusual investigations that were able to shed some light on unsolved mysteries such as the murders of the Fontainebleau finacés and jogger Marie-Christine Hodeau (in Essonne), as well as the infanticides of Valentin (in Ain) and Jonathan (in Loire-Atlantique). Thanks to the police forensics teams along with modern methods of observation and research, David Galtier was the one whose work led to unforeseen developments in several cold cases. Over the course of each of these terrifying crime stories, the investigation’s suspense meets the emotion of shattered destinies and the hope for justice.
Rich with fascinating information and anecdotes, Galtier’s memoirs allow us to better understand the Gendarmerie in its stunning ability to adapt to and anticipate crime. The Gendarmerie may date back to ninth-century France, but it puts humanity at the heart of its actions now more than ever.
