France between the two wars is the scene of the six episodes in this high - spirited and original book, a France magically transmuted by the author's skill and the nature of his material into a land of romance where almost anything can happen, a country somewhat akin to the Spain through which Don Quixote pursued his amazing adventures. The author's father belonged to a small group of World War I veterans, airmen all, known as Les Canards Crevés, or the Ruptured Ducks.
