appeared that honourable terms had been offered to Poland. We returned home mad with joy. Next day the report was denied and Poland was invaded. Once more it was war, but war without Russia, with an America hobbled by neutrality, with an England ill-prepared, and against a formidable German air force. All intelligent Frenchmen were desperate and, to add a crowning touch to their suffering, they could not say so publicly.
Although for a number of years I had not been of military age, I had made application to remain an officer in the reserves. And so, on the 2nd of September, I presented myself at the Place de Paris where I was informed that I had been attached, by the Ministry of War, to a Committee of Information of which Jean Giraudoux was to be the head and which was to be installed at the Hotel Continental on the Rue de Rivoli. I went there. Gardes Mobiles were guarding the doors. The corridors were full of superannuated colonels, retired ambassadors and professors from the College de France.

I was in Morize's office at the Prime Ministry on Sunday, the 3rd of September, at five o'clock when the ultimatum expired and the war began. When the five strokes rang out we clasped each other's hands in silence.
A little later I went into Giraudoux's office and he asked me what I wanted to do.
`It seems to me,' I said, that I might usefully maintain liaison with England, explain our needs to the English, urge them to increase their efforts and keep the French in-formed of this effort.'
He approved at once, but he was submerged by the multiplicity of services to be established, and when the list was posted I found myself an
