SITZKRIEG

assistant to Monsieur Laroche, former French Ambassador to Warsaw, in an office charged with the duty of seeing that articles were written for the French newspapers.
Rarely in the course of my life have I felt such discouragement and sadness as in the few days I spent at the General Commissariat of Information. As in 1914, I arrived bursting with good will, ready to rush across continents and kill myself with work. They said to me:
`See that articles are written.'
'Articles? But by whom?'
`By anyone you like.'
`But what aboute'
`About anything you choose.'
`For what newspapersa'
`For all the newspapers that will take them.'
`And who will pay for these articles?'
`Oh, don't ask us for money; we haven't a franc.'
The most incredible thing was that the General Commissariat of Information of the French Republic in time of war actually had no funds. Also this organization, like the others, was immediately torn by political passions. The people of the Right said that it was the resort of Communists; the people of the Left that it was a den of Reactionaries. The College de France felt that there were too many diplomats; the Quai d'Orsay that there were too many professors; the Rue St. Dominique, that there were not enough Army men. For me, who hated quarrels, these discussions rapidly became so intolerable that I begged General Chardigny, who was in charge of the Army contingent at the Commissariat of Information, to send me somewhere else.
`I am not afraid of danger, mon General,' I said to him, `but I, cannot stand inaction and disorder.'
`And where would you like to go?' this worthy man asked. `There's no real war, you know.'
Unexpectedly, just at the moment when I had given up hope, I received one morning a letter bearing the imprint of the British War Office. Here it is:
Sir,
I am commanded by the Army Council to convey to you a most cordial invitation to act as French Official -Eye-Witness at General
