Summary
"A Zouave's Journey is a biography of an orphan's struggles to survive in late-nineteenth-century France. As a young man, he was drafted into the elite 3rd Zouave regiment, fought in the historic battles of 1917 and 1918, was wounded, and suffered from the effects of severe gas poisoning. In 1920, he returned to a society that soon forgot the hardships endured by his generation. The Musee Alfred Desmasures is the recipient of administrative documents pertaining to his childhood as well as his war journal, letters, and other memorabilia perpetuating the sacrifices of the men of 1914-1918. This book is based on the information provided by Achille Lecreux of the 37th African Division. A Zouave's Journey is certain to engage a broad spectrum of readers in historical, cultural, military, and social studies and is recommended for both undergraduate and graduate libraries."--BOOK JACKET
