BLITZKRIEG

`What the English physicists have done since the beginning of this campaign;' Langevin told me, `is splendid. They have worked out a procedure for detecting aeroplanes at a distance and a hundred other ingenious methods of defence ...)ust see how fast they have been in the matter of magnetic mines. In two weeks they analysed the nature of the mines, found a way of countering them and suggested simple and inexpensive means of protecting their ships. There you have efficient work ... For my own part I am doing research work on two or three fairly important matters....'
Talking to these scientists gave me keen pleasure. Deafened by propaganda I had become unused to this precise and detached way of thinking.

As soon as I returned to Arras, I was called upon by Captain Georges de Castellane who belonged to the General Staff of the First Army Group and who came on behalf of General Billotte to ask me to give lectures to all the armies of the group. The first was to be delivered at General Billotte's own Headquarters. I was well acquainted with the General, who had been Military Governor of Paris. He was a brusque and brilliant man, competent in every way to command the best of the French armies. Unfortunately he was destined to be killed in an automobile accident at the beginning of the German offensive.
`I'm going to send you around among my armies,' he said. `Talk to them about the British Army and also about England in general ... I myself know the English well; they are slow, terribly slow, but in the end they get things done ... And then they hold on. That's what you must explain to the French.'
Then began for me several strange and exciting weeks. Each morning a French military car would come to get me and take me to a new staff headquarters. I would have lunch with the General, and in the evening my lecture would be delivered before a gathering of two thousand officers, N.C.O.s and soldiers. Thus I saw a large number of our leaders. With the First Army at Bohain I found General Blandchard, a smart and expert soldier, surrounded by enthusiastic officers who planned and replanned the entrance into Belgium in order to save half an hour on the timetable. He sent me to see a military review held by General Bougrain and there I saw, with admiration, superb regiments. The motorized cavalry division, the bands, the flourish of trumpets, the brilliant flags,
