Paul Fussell in Paris, 1945 ‘The Farther from the Scene of Horror, the Easier the Talk’
R. J. Stove

Robert Stove provides an obituary appropriate for Memorial Day.

By 'the Permanent Things' [T. S. Eliot] meant those elements in the human condition that give us our nature, without which we are as the beasts that perish. They work upon us all in the sense that both they and we are bound up in that continuity of belief and institution called the great mysterious incorporation of the human race.
