Throughout the four years he spent at the front as an anonymous soldier, he steadily sent his eight-year-old daughter--whom he lovingly nicknamed belle petite monde (my pretty little world)--descriptions and drawings of the daily life of Frances poilus, as ordinary troops were called in World War I. This sketchbook is a first-hand account of the Great War. It is identical to Renefers original one and remarkable for its I was there quality. A moving and poetic gem meant for children.
