"Before and during the World War, all the different races serving in the French Army were excellently officered by subalterns and non-coms born in North Africa, but of European ancestry: by sons of immigrated colonists of French, Spanish and Italian extraction.

In the native regiments, they constitute a human concrete, which keeps together men of antagonistic races and beliefs'"
