France fights for her firesides. In that sentence we touch the chord that stirs the soul of the Nation. The legions that line the trenches from the Somme to the Vosges hold back with their rifles, their machine guns, and their cannon, the enemy who would overrun French fields and put the flame to French homes. All the rhetoric of the politicians, who juggle the blame of the war, cannot hide this fact. Who started the war is a question almost lost in the lurid haze of the past. But, with her sons bleeding and dying on her very soil, France today is roused to a condition of heroism that matches the glory of Sparta. . .
