COLONEL BRAMBLE

and artillery fire, the tremolo of the machine-guns and the melody of anguish - and thus be delivered from them. When the book was finished Raymond Woog, who had come to Abbeville to paint General Asset's portrait, read my manuscript:
`It must be published,' he said.
Such was also the opinion of Captain de Mun.
`But I don't know any publisher,' I objected.
One of my friends replied that nothing was simpler, and undertook to deliver my manuscript to a young publisher of whom he spoke very highly - Bernard Grasset.
Soon a reply came: Grasset liked the book and was ready to publish it. Since I was an officer on active service I had to have authorization from the Mission. The latter was very reluctant. Commandant de Casteja, who was our chief of personnel, summoned me to Montreuil:
`I find your little book very entertaining,' he said. `But you can't publish it under your own name! ... The English officers with whom you are living or have lived might recognize themselves and be offended. If there is the slightest complaint it will be this unhappy Mission that will be blamed ... No, we give you our moral authorization, but you must use a pseudonym.'
This disappointed me, because as a young and unknown author almost the only readers I could count on were my friends in Normandy and my old comrades in the Lycee and the Regiment, who would not be able to recognize me under a pseudonym. Finally I resigned myself and selected the first name Andre, in memory of my cousin who had been killed in action, and Maurois, the name of a village near Cambrai, because I liked its sad sonority ... Andre Maurois ... How strange and new those syllables sounded to me then!
Meanwhile Grasset was printing Les Silences. He sent me the first proofs. They arrived at the time when the Germans were advancing on Amiens in March 1918. For several days I believed the war was lost. Long streams of refugees pushing wheelbarrows full of furniture, children's toys and potatoes, came through Abbeville. To establish and provision +a new front we worked day and night. The bombings were redoubled. Thousands of trucks, rushing up French troops to seal the breach, maintained an uninterrupted rumble beneath our windows. I found reassurance in the calm of General Asser:
