This volume includes the war letters of the French women Mireille Dupouey, born Arnault de La Ménardière in Brest, (1890-1932), written to her young devout catholic husband Pierre-Dominique Dupouey (1977-1915), an officer in the French army, between August 1914 and April 1915, when he died in the battle at Yser. The widow became a writer and joined the Third Order of Dominicans in 1928 to become a nun. She died 1932 in Paris. The French writer Henri Ghéon (1875-1944), an officer during World War I too and good friend of Pierre-Dominique Dupouey, knew about their love and war story, got hold of the war letters by Mireille Dupouey, and published them in 1940.
