Who was Émile Zurlinden?

Émile Zurlinden was French Minister of War between 5 September 1898 and 17 September 1898. He succeeded Godefroy Cavaignac. A general, he was previously governor of Paris, and he accepted the vacant post of minister of war at the personal request of the president of the republic. He was an honest soldier, but narrow-minded; insults in the press did not fail to affect him.

He was closely involved in the Resolution of the Dreyfus Affair. His successor was Charles Chanoine. He also was cross-eyed.
