SITZKRIEG

Might not the day come when we ourselves would need to remember his example?
About the Zoth of August the political news became worse. Worried, we decided not to stay in Essendieras through September but to return to Paris by way of Malagar in order to pay a visit there to Francois Mauriac.
The house was just as we had expected and as he had often described it, a sunbaked white house, surrounded on all sides as far as the eye could reach by pale green vines dusted with blue sulphate; it had the fine, secret and intimate savour of an old liqueur. Fran~ois and Jeanne were there, as well as their children and the Abbe Mauriac. As so often happens in the Bordelais, there was a storm in the air. The flies stuck to us persistently. We took a long, melancholy walk beneath a violently hot sun and we talked about the dangers that threatened us all. At that time the peace depended on Russia, and England and France were negotiating with her. That evening after dinner, Francois read us his play Les Mal Aimees. He read well in his hurt, muffled voice that added its own pathos to that of the characters. The play was a fine one; it had the same atmosphere of moral uneasiness and of restrained violence as Asmodee. Between the second and third acts we listened to the news over the radio:
`Moscow announces a non-aggression pact with Berlin. ...'
One of the children asked:
`What does that mean?'
I replied:
`It means war.'
We returned to Paris next day. Already troop transports were crawling along the railways beside which we drove. When we arrived we hurried, as we had done the year before, to Lucien Romier's office, but this time our prophet did not reassure us. For several days we spent all our time hanging over the radio. The grave, sad speeches of Daladier were in consonance with the French people's desire for peace. But many were exasperated by the constantly renewed alarms.
`After all, il faut en finir!' said my barber who was leaving for the Maginot Line.
Almost every evening we dined with Pierre Brisson at some restaurant in the Bois, and then returned with him to the Figaro office to get the news. On Thursday, the 31st of August, we thought the game had been won. It
