"Proof of this is found in the glad-
ness of our hearts. We find joy in the
smallest things, and we laugh incess-
antly. I do not mean to say that there
are no desirable joys in peace, but
we had become satiated with enjoy-'
ment, like rich children who have too
many toys within their grasp. This
is a school of suffering and we learn
to content ourselves with little. This
corporal who has made an excellent
saw out of an old clockspring found in
the ruins of a village, and who uses
it to make rings from the aluminum
shell-fuses, is happier now with his
improvised tool than when he used his
leisure time in running from cabaret.'
to cabaret. This is a vital lesson,
and we must not let it pass unnotic-
It is not often in these days that we
have the good fortune to meet with
someone who, while playing a vital
role in the great turmoil, is able to
step aside, as it were, and regard it all
impassionately, without hysteria.
Lieutenant Antoine Redier, a man of
the highest education and culture, has
given his spare time in the trenches
too the writing of a book of reflec-
tions on the phenomena which the
war has brought to his attention.. It
is to be regretted that in the transla-
tion the French title was not pre-
served, for "Meditations dans la Tran-
chee" is much more apt than, "Com-
rades in Courage." The book is by
no means a war story. It is rather a
philosophy of war-a careful and in-
telligent study of the daily effects of
war upon its fighters, and while the
author does not forget or underesti-
mate the heroism, the- glory, and the
danger of it all, his study is truly of
the soul of France, and its manifesta-
tion by war.
The book is beautifully Written,, and
Lieutenant Redier's thoughts and ex-
pressions are surely akin to poetry.
He dwells not on the strife itself, but
rather upon the magic which it is
working in the hearts of these clumsy,
awkward, thick-fingered men, finding

the roughestbdiLes.
