 "He's teachin' me the
'goose-step' - and I'm a
German captain!"

13
 "There you go again -
teaching Bobby to be a
Prussian - before he's
learned his 'a, b, c's'!"

14
 "I'm not going back to
Germany, Angela - because
I've fallen in love with a
little American!"

15
 "You will leave in the
morning on the 'Imperator'
for Hamburg, where you
will join your regiment.
In the meantime, absolute
silence!"

16
 "For reasons I can't
explain, Angela, I'm going
away. I haven't the right
to ask you for your answer
until I come back - if I
do come back!"

17
 "But you will come to 
see me before you go?"

18

    the World.

patrol boat will pick you
up!"

Vangy - go, Mademoiselle,
while there is still time!"

37
 "We'll fall back on Verne
- you'd better remove the
wounded."

38
 "Our ambulance has broken 
down, Mademoiselle, may
we leave the wounded here?"

39
 "Go without me - I'm
going to nurse these men!"

    Town of Vangy.

41
 "We've been 'billeted' to
Chateau Vangy - - where
one may find old wine and
young girls!"

telephone!"

43
 "I am indeed desolate,
Mademoiselle, since losing
both my arm - and my
heart!"

44
 "Mademoiselle, you are in
great danger in this chateau!"

45
 "Since you are determined
to stay, Mademoiselle, you
may render France a great
service!"

46
 "May he pose as your 
'butler' - - it is vitally
important that he telephone
me the new position of the
German guns."

47
 "I need hardly tell
you, it means death if this
telephone is discovered!"

48
 "They wouldn't dare
touch an American citizen!"

49
The Prussians' Calling Card.

50
 "Throw in some bombs
and fire a volley - - to assure
us hospitality!"

51
 "Where are those pretty
girls, Fritz?"

52
 "Gentlemen - you are
breaking into the home of
an American citizen - I must
ask you to leave!"

53
 "If there's a spark of
manhood left in you - go
and save those women!"

54
 "You don't understand -
I can't give orders to my 
superior officer!"

55
 "Somewhere in this house
- there must be a man who
is something more than a
splendidly drilled beast!"

56
 "The women are being 
attacked - - won't you save
them?"

57
 "Madam, my men must 
have relaxation!"

 "If you don't want to go 
with him - stay here and
take off my boots."

as a warning to others - I
order you to be shot!"

62
 "This lady is desirous of
leaving the Chateau, sir -
will you pass her through 
our lines?"

63
 "Mademoiselle - you are
an American - - don't let
them shoot my people!"

64
 "I don't need your passport
- I'm going to stay!"

65
 "There are three German
guns near Chateau: one by 
the garage - one under the 
trees near the gate - - one
in the hollow by the river!"

66
 "Don't worry about me!
You have no choice when
it's one woman - or the
battle-line of France!"

67
  The Echo of
Angela's Message.

68
 "A direct hit at the first 
shot means that someone is
giving the position of our
guns - search the place for 
wires!"

69
 "You are shooting too high
for the gun by the garage!"

70
 "Go by the window - -
it's death if they find you!"

71
 "Make them think you've 
captured me - it's the only 
way!"

72
 "I commend you, Lieutenant,
for the capture of a spy!"

73

74
 "I was neutral - 'till I
saw your soldiers destroying
women and shooting old men!
Then I stopped being 'neutral'
and became a human being!"

75
 "You may lighten your 
sentence - - if you will
telephone the French false
positions of our guns."

76
 "By violating neutrality
you have forfeited your
rights as an American - - it
is the sentence of this court
that you be immediately
shot!"

77
 "I'm done with you and 
your Emperor! I'd rather die
free than live in the grip of
your damnable 'system'!"

78
 "Shoot the woman as a
spy - and the man for
treason!"

79

position and fall back!"

freedom!"
