BARRACKS SCHOOL

The trouble was that in most of the corps there was too little nourishment for their enthusiasm. An army that has no well defined task goes to sleep. In the colonies the officers worked. At the War College various enthusiastic professors inspired the best of them. But in the garrisons, routine gave rise to indifference. It was noticeable that little effort was being made in the modernization of methods or in taking advantage of scientific progress. Not enough was said to the soldiers about the glory of France and the immense patrimony she had to defend. Politics, especially after the Affaire Dreyfus, had crept into the army and divided it. Parliament was interested first of all in making sure that the principal leaders of the army were Republicans; they should have demanded that they be leaders as well. That was easy enough to see in 1914 when the men whom the Ministry had kept in the shadow shot up to the highest posts because of their talents.
As to the rank and file, they were the immemorial Frenchmen, `Frenchmen, sons of Frenchmen under the same oriflamme'. They were grumblers, always discontented and always ready to sacrifice their lives provided someone took the trouble to tell them why. A Frenchman has to understand. During manoeuvres I had been able to do with my men what I liked because I had treated them as intelligent, free, human beings. The Frenchman asks nothing better than to work if the task seems to him worth while; if he gets the feeling that he's wasting his time he becomes embittered. In short, a Frenchman has a need of justice; promises must be kept and offences must be judged fairly. Such were the lessons I learned in the army; they were to stand me in good stead in industry.
