La chambre des officiers

€6,20

"La guerre de 14, je ne l'ai pas connue. Je veux dire, la tranchée boueuse, l'humidité qui traverse les os, les gros rats noirs au pelage d'hiver qui se faufilent entre les détritus informes, les odeurs mélangées de tabac gris et d'excréments mal enterrés, avec, pour couvrir le tout, un ciel métallique uniforme qui se déverse à intervalles réguliers comme si Dieu n'en finissait plus de s'acharner sur le simple soldat. C'est cette guerre-là que je n'ai pas connue."

Dans les premiers jours de 14, Adrien F, lieutenant du génie, est fauché par un éclat d'obus sur les bords de la Meuse. Défiguré, il est transporté au Val-de-Gréce où il séjournera cinq ans dans la chambre des officiers. Au fil des amitiés qui s'y noueront, lui et ses camarades, malgré la privation brutale d'une part de leur identité, révéleront toute leur humanité. De cette épopée dramatique, émouvante, mais drôle aussi parfois, on retiendra que des blessures naît aussi la gréce.
