December 1st 1917, Verdun sector
‘SNOW! A world absolutely
transformed! Snow on the little huts, on the trees, glistening on the ground,
and the air crisp and tingling. Because of the danger of planes taking pictures
of tracks in the snow, we have to cross the open places on a single path, and the
cars have to use one track only’
