1112 Dare Call It Treason, by Richard M. Watt (read 18 Apr 1971) This is an account of the French Army mutinies in 1917. It is a fascinating book, altho it really does not tell too much about the actual mutinies. In fact, apparently the mutinies were not as massive as one sometimes hears--altho they certainly were bad enough and might have caused France's defeat if the Germans had known and acted. This book sketches--rather unoriginally--France from 1870 on, dwells on the French losses up to the time of Nivelle's offensive in 1917, and then tells of the May and June 1917 mutinies, and Petain's method of dealing with them. Then the author sketches Clemenceau's ascent to power. He became premier on Nov 20, 1917. He speedily became a dictator, and undoubtedly helped tremendously to win the war. He died in Paris on Nov 24, 1929, at age 88. ( )
