'Claude Barres is not only representative of the whole generation which grew up into the violence of the last war, but, in a special way, of Frenchmen of the at generation.  Grandson of Maurice Barres, born into a family of very strong patriotic traditions to spend a childhood in its three family residences, each rich in historical associations, he felt himself the upholder of a chivalrous ideal of France, in the service of which he was to show exceptional personal courage, and a touching regard for those under his command, as well as a clear and sensible appreciation of the difficulties facing France in the post-war world.'
