The Business Army - traduction francaise

Un extrait de mon roman sur la Grande Dépression et une tentative de coup d'Etat fasciste aux États-Unis:


"Bon sang, nous allons recevoir des ordres de vos semblables! Vous n'êtes qu'un pion! Ne sentez-vous pas honte? Il y a des anciens combattants ici qui peuvent à peine nourrir leur famille! vous commencez à donner des cours aux autres sur leur devoir? "

Mais les troupes ne sont pas émues. Et tandis qu’ils continuent leur progression, les manifestants sont obligés de choisir entre la retraite et le faible défi aux non-armés qui, bientôt, se transforment en défaite.

Un autre officier siffle brusquement et un deuxième bataillon de cavalerie plus agressif avance. Une fois sur la foule, certains soldats retournent leurs fusils et utilisent leurs crosses comme des matraques.

Derrière le fantassin, qui avance également, se trouve une colonne de chars. Au milieu d'eux se trouve la figure de George S. Patton. Il surveille la foule pendant quelques instants. Puis il dit à ses équipages: "Charge!"

Les chars crient en avant; l'infanterie piétine en rythme, la cavalerie gémit et attaque. Les manifestants sont maintenant divisés en une série de groupes dispersés. Certains se mettent à courir. D'autres crient, poussent et poussent. Mais à quelques mètres de là, il semble presque que les manifestants aient une chance: les troupes, les chevaux et les tanks ne semblent pas remporter une victoire nette. Puis un coup de feu retentit, suivi d'un autre. On entend une voix de femme crier avec hystérie: "Jésus! Seigneur Jésus!"

Cela semble seulement raidir une partie de la résistance des manifestants, même si quelqu'un d'autre, sa voix aussi hystérique, crie: "Docteur!" et le melée atteint son crescendo.

The Business Army



An excerpt from my novel about the Great Depression and an attempted fascist coup in the United States:

"The hell we'll take orders from the likes of you! You're just a pawn! Don't you feel any shame? There are veterans here who can barely feed their families! Why don't you think of justice first before you start lecturing others on their duty?"
But the troops are unmoved. And as they continue their advance, the demonstrators are forced to choose between retreat and the feeble defiance of the un-armed which, soon enough, turns to defeat.
A different officer blows a whistle sharply, and second, more aggressive battalion of cavalry move forward. Some of the soldiers, upon reaching the crowd, reverse their rifles and use their butts like truncheons.
Behind the foot soldier, also advancing, is a column of tanks. In the midst of them is the figure of George S. Patton. He surveys the crowd for a few moments. Then he says to his crews, "Charge!"
The tanks trundle-squeak forward; the infantry stomp in rhythm, the cavalry whinny and attack. The demonstrators are now divided into a series of broken up groups. Some turn to run. Others scream, push and shove. But from several yards away, it seems almost as if the demonstrators might have a chance: the troops and the horses and the tanks do not seem to be achieving a clear victory. Then a shot rings out, followed by another. A woman's voice can be heard screaming hysterically, "Jesus! Lord Jesus!"
This only seems to stiffen some of the demonstrators' resistance, even as someone else, his voice also hysterical, calls out, "Doctor!" and the melée reaches its crescendo.

The Business Army - excerpt


Washington, 1933. The Great Depression is at its worst. The Roosevelt administration is determined to do something, but feels constrained by conservative opinion.
*

The interior of the Oval Office.
It is three days after the inauguration. Roosevelt sits behind his desk, surrounded by advisors, including Lew Douglas, Rexford Tugwell, Ray Moley, Louis Howe and James Farley.
Roosevelt states, "We have to stop this bleeding of the banks."
Lew Douglas says, "We could create our own banks."
Roosevelt: "How do you mean?"
Ray Moley, a soft-spoken man who is going genially bald, cuts in, "We could create a national chain of banks. They would be backed by government-issued bonds. People would have a guarantee their savings are secure."
James Farley, fleshy-faced, earnestly expressive, says, "We can't do that. That would be equivalent to nationalizing the current system."
Rexford Tugwell looks at Farley. "So?"
"The people won't have it. Not the businessmen and the professional folk—the 'doctors and accountants and whatnot.' This is a country built on enterprise, not government interference."
