BLITZKRIEG

She remained standing beneath the horse chestnut trees of the Boulevard Maurice Barres until my car had disappeared.

To my great surprise I reached the Buc Aerodrome without difficulty. The myriads of cars that were leaving Paris that day were heading toward the south, not toward the west. At the entrance to the field a sergeant of the military police painstakingly verified my identity.
`The Germans are within thirty kilometres, mon Capitaine,' he said.
That wasn't far, but he was calm and, like the little saleswomen in Paris, he was performing his duty to the last moment. The aeroplane which was to take me had not yet arrived. I sat down on the grass and waited. The heat was stormy and oppressive. I went to sleep and dreamed of my childhood, of the forked lilacs of Elbeuf and of the white and pink anemones that faded in my hands. A noise awakened me. It was a big Flamingo plane landing. Lord Lloyd got out. I knew him and went up to shake hands.
`I've come to see Reynaud,' he said. `Is he still in Paris?'
`Yes, I think so . . .'
It was his fine plane in which I was to fly; but when the pilot tried to start it one of the motors refused to run. After twenty attempts the young flier said angrily:
`And that's how we're winning the war!'
At that moment another Flamingo arrived - a much less elegant machine, but it ran - and I was told to get in.
