“Above all things, never be afraid. The enemy who forces you to retreat is himself afraid of you at that very moment.”
Andre Maurois (1885 to 1967)
André Maurois, pseudonym of Émile Herzog, was a French biographer, novelist, and essayist, best known for biographies that maintain the narrative interest of novels.
He was a liaison officer in the British army during World War I, and his first literary success was a humorous commentary on warfare and the British character in Les Silences du Colonel Bramble (1918; The Silence of Colonel Bramble).
