An unusually vivid and stirring book. "In this book," says Mr. Gibbs, "I have set down simply the scenes and character of this war as they have come before my own eyes, and as I have studied them for nearly a year of history. If there is any purpose in which I have written beyond mere record is to reveal the soul of war so nakedly that it can not be glossed over by the glamor of false sentiment and false heroics. More passionate than other emotion that has stirred me through life, is my conviction that any man that has seen these things, must, if he has any gift of expression, and any human pity, dedicate his brain and heart to the sacred duty of preventing another war like this."
In his remarkably human narrative, Mr. Gibbs carries the reader from the days of foreboding and early mobilization through the first days of invasion of Belgium and reveals particularly the soul of Paris and the character of the soldiers of France as only an eye witness can tell the story.
