I'm working on the backstory of a character set in the 1920's. He's French and fought in World War One, and it affected him greatly. Any recommendations for books of letters or diaries of French soldiers (translated to English--my French is limited to culinary French at best)? Suggestions of documentaries are also welcome. This is key: I'm looking specifically for personal recollections of French soldiers from the social commentary angle, not military strategies or extensive combat details. I'm just trying to get into the guy's head of why he behaves in certain ways in the "present day"1920's and am looking for details to flesh out his story. So, letters home, stories of things that happened in France from the townspeople's point of view...that sort of thing. ETA: If anyone's familiar with the book For Love and Courage: the Letters of Lieutenant Colonel E.W. Hermon from the Western Front (which is excellent by the way), I'm looking for something like that, but from a French soldier. (ETA: For Love and Courage is a book of letters home to an English soldier's wife and children.) Thanks so much!
