Description: 

A number of characters in Flags in the Dust go to France during the First World War. Bayard and John Sartoris see combat over the trenches, as pilots in the Royal Air Force; Buddy MacCallum serves with valor in the infantry; Caspey Strother was enrolled in the supply services, the only way black soldiers were allowed to serve at that time; and Horace Benbow (accompanied by Montgomery Ward Snopes) serves as a non-combatant with the Y.M.C.A. Bayard is described as haunted by the war, especially the loss of his brother, but the narrative gives few details about what either "France" or "WWI" was like.
