General Pau, the noted French Commander, now 70 years of age who lost an arm in the Franco Prussian War in 1870 fighting under Bzaine at Keronville, recovered from amputation before the surrender of Metz; escaped to Tours, and was drafted into Bourbaki's army. He refused the post of Commander in Chief when the Great War of 1914 began and put forward the claims of his friend, Joffre, but has since rendered conspicuous service at the front.
