The Honour of the Army, and Other Stories free pdf Excerpt from The Honour of the Army, and Other Stories The present volume contains a selection of M. Zola's short stories, most of them written several years ago, and contributed to the pages of a Russian review. They show their author in a variety of moods, and, if some may seem sombre and tragic, the reader will find others of a very different kind, one indeed which is all joviality, whilst another is brimful of quiet humour. 'Le Capitaine Burle, ' here called 'The Honour of the Army, ' is, I think, the only story by M. Zola in which a duel is described. I cannot recall any example of the kind in any of the twenty volumes of the 'Rougon-Macquart' series which otherwise so faithfully delineate French life in the days of the Second Empire- and the omission is a curious one, for duelling was quite as rife under Napoleon III. as it is under the present Republic. But for those who are interested in M. Zola's personality more interest attaches to 'Le Capitaine Burle' for another reason. It is a story of profligacy and dishonesty - peculation by a regimental officer - such a case, indeed, as unhappily arises from time to time in even the most rigidly regulated services.
