The attached letter was written by a French soldier who had participated in one of the earliest battles of 1914. In this letter, that managed to make it into both the French and British papers, the soldier took a good deal of time to describe his impressions of the first German prisoners to be taken in the conflict:

"Their appetite is so great that, though in [the] presence of a French officer they will click their heels together properly, they never cease at the same time to munch noisily and to fill out their hollow cheeks".
