 About the Book 

“This life (of M. de Sonis) is more than a rare spectacle – it is a great lesson. I hear on all sides that what is most wanted in these days are men of character. M. de Sonis was eminently a man of marked character- we have rarely seen one like him.More“This life (of M. de Sonis) is more than a rare spectacle – it is a great lesson. I hear on all sides that what is most wanted in these days are men of character. M. de Sonis was eminently a man of marked character- we have rarely seen one like him. He has been called the “man of duty”, and he practiced this duty at whatever cost without ever considering the sacrifices it might entail. Discipline, honesty, morality, honour, were virtues which he guarded with jealous care. But, besides all this, General de Sonis was a man of heart. As a husband, a father, a brother, a friend, he was a model of the deepest tenderness and the most constant affection. He was not a stranger to anything that was loveable- he admired beautiful places, works of art, brilliant deeds, good books, holy souls above all.”“To those who are striving to lead a Christian life in this present day battle with the forces of evil, this book is full of encouragement. In the words of Monseigneur Baunard, General de Sonis fought as a hero, lived as a saint, suffered as a martyr, and died as one predestined to eternal life. May his example be followed by us all, and may he thus perpetuate after his death the good he never ceased to do during his life.”- Taken from the Preface of the book The Life of General de Sonis
