 Henri Guisan - Wikipedia. Henri Guisan (21 October 1874 - 7 April 1960) was a Swiss army officer who held the office of the General of the Swiss Army during World War II. He was the fourth and the most recent man to be appointed to the rarely used Swiss rank of General, and was possibly Switzerland's most famous soldier.
