With supreme understatement he alludes to the Second Battle of Champagne , an offensive lasting from September to December 25, , in which , French troops were killed in the first three weeks: .
Everybody was drunk. The whole battery was drunk going along the road in the dark. We were going to Champagne. The lieutenant kept riding his horse out into the fields and saying to him, "I'm drunk, I tell you, mon vieux. Oh I am so soused.

If a writer of prose knows enough of what he is writing about he may omit things that he knows and the reader, if the writer is writing truly enough, will have a feeling of those things as strongly as though the writer had stated them. The dignity of movement of an ice-berg is due to only one-eighth of it being above water. A writer who omits things because he does not know them only makes hollow places in his writing.

The Sun Also Rises , published the next year, is considered the more important book followed fairly rapidly by the popular A Farewell to Arms two years after in ; critics' general assumption seemed to be that Hemingway's talent lay in writing prose rather than "sophisticated, complex design";  and In Our Time stories were combined with subsequent collections in the publication of The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories in , drawing the critics' attention away from the book as an entity, toward the individual stories.
In , when Scribner's released the paperback edition of In Our Time , it began to be taught in American universities, and by the end of the decade, the first critical study of the collection appeared.

Vera Atkins placed agents out to the field, training them for months, teaching them the ropes and accounting for every detail of their new identities.
So when the war ended in with over agents unaccounted for, she made it her personal mission to solve the stories of these missing women herself. She muscled her way into officially joining the British War Crimes Commission. She was known for her ruthless interrogation skills: she notes in one report that she had the commandment of Auschwitz admitting to his horrible crimes before lunch.

When she returned to the United States, she focused on publicizing and memorializing her forgotten agents, so much so that she appears briefly in some of the movies made of their lives.
