"The impression made upon the hard-pressed French by this seemingly inexhaustible flood of gleaming youth in its first maturity of health and vigor was prodigious (amazing). None were under twenty, and few were over thirty....the French Headquarters were thrilled with the impulse of new life....Half taned, half organized, with only their courage, their numbers and their magnificent youth behind their weapons, they were to buy their experience at at a bitter price. But this they were quite read to do."
