WW1 Stories  
We are a French company. We develop audio guides for tourism purposes that we include in mobile apps.
At the moment we are developing one mobile app about the Great War (WW1). It tells the stories of french cities and men who lived in the north east of France during the WW1.
Several characters are telling these stories.

We provide french audio file to help you with the pronunciations of french names.

Marceau Sailly says :

"My name is Marceau. Marceau Sailly. Section TP112 (Personnel Transport) in the Automobile Service that was created in 1914. Before the war, I was a taxi driver. Things were much quieter back then.

Shells explode, singly or in pairs, every 8 to 10 seconds. I don’t even leave my seat. I lie low. Turning over in my mind the words of the ordinary soldiers that we take or bring back. They say we’re not going to be able to hold it this time, that we’re done for!

But we don’t have any choice. The officers have told us: we’re not allowed to stop. A lorry breaks down, we push it into the ditch. Traffic has to get through. Even at night because there are far fewer bombardments then…I’ve seen plenty of soldiers, me. When they see me at the wheel, some of them take me for a shirker. But I’ve been through it too, I can tell you, …And I’m not alone.
In late February, 1916, the weather started getting warmer. And the road started melting. The lorries got bogged down. Civilians were drafted in along with soldiers from the territorial army. Too old to fight but young enough and strong enough to shovel stones. They were called the Pépères, old codgers with a cushy number. But they had a hell of a time of it too. "

You can here the french version in the audio file attached (Step1_WW1-stories_Meuse.mp3 -> Listen Marceau Sailly from 1:41 to 2:48)
