Les Taxis De La Marne

Les Taxis De La Marne

By Jean Dutourd

Gallimard, 1956, 275 pp.

A bitter and provocative condemnation of France's leadership in 1940. Invoking, in contrast, the episode of the Marne taxicabs of World War I, the young author traces the development of his own patriotism from the period of his two weeks' army career at the time of the fall of France.
