Overview

Excerpt from The Latin at War

That February 22 of 1916, when I re-entered Paris and the world of war, was a period of tense, hidden drama, re-echoing the louder drama of Verdun. To the group of correspondents who had hurried back to Europe from a rest at home, the great battle was not wholly unexpected. Nothing about this war has been so paradoxical as the secrecy of its minor tactics and the glaring publicity of its grand strategy. Any large movement involves long and huge preparation. Ten thousand pairs of shrewd eyes behold the signs; and where there are eyes there are tongues. Now in this case, informed people among the Germans in the United States had been saying ever since Christmas that the Allies would never take the initiative on the Western front. Early, very early, in the year, the Germans would begin a "drive on Paris."
