EXCERPT:

leave you to judge which it was–fear or desire–that came to light in me in the trenches of Pont-a-Mousson.

Foot by foot we had driven the Germans out of the forest of Le Pretre; and when the winter came down on us we had brought up behind the ridge overlooking the Moselle, with the enemy on the other side, fifteen miles away from Metz.



COMMENTS:

Dramatic story set in the trenches of France in WW1. Airplanes, shooting, suspense, death. But probably unstageable, and you’d have to invent actual characters and scenes, as much of the action is described in big wide shots, rather than intimate ones involving conversations.
