Let us forget here the greats ones of this world, inaccessible and enclosed in their bubbles,
whose every move is spread in the newspapers.
The characters in these books, you could have crossed them - and you may have crossed them - without imagining the richness of their lives.
They have witnessed great tragic events, such as wars, but also the transformations of our world.
These are exciting existences that they give us, incredible adventures, tasty anecdotes…
With them you will plunge back into the unsuspected world of your parents and grandparents and enjoy
with delight what you have never been told…
These books will also help you discover, through the eyes of those who live there, the hidden treasures of our regions and terroirs.
Books from the Reflets de vies collection to discover:
In the Breloux-La Crèche station, Fernand observes the joyful departure of
the first mobilized, those of Sunday, August 2, 1914. Fernand is doubtful. He is rather in line
with Jaurès' ideas and spirit of peace. But how can we not let ourselves be taken by the joy of these young soldiers
who want to avenge the defeat of 1870? And then, as everyone says, this short conflict will prepare
a hundred-year peace!
Much more than a simple personal course, Fernand tells us the story of the men he met at the back,
on the front line or in the prisoner-of-war camps.
All these ordinary adventures, yet so poignant, transmits to us a complete vision of the Great War.
Exciting and instructive.
Born in 1901, Robert Dumazet makes us share his automobile
passion through his mechanic work. Insatiable in his desire
for testing all type of cars, he will have, all through his
live, more than thousand cars…
Beyond the mechanical adventure, it is a great human adventure
that Robert Dumazet tells us. Entered in the automobile
environment thanks to a saucy glance, he makes us discover
the universe of the factory work at the beginning of the 20th
century. He entrusts to us the memories of his meetings with
men like Joffre, Hiro-Hito, Maginot, Marot, Barré and with
very many other picturesque characters.
Incidentally, Robert Dumazet delivers his philosophy of life
to us, perhaps source of his longevity.
