"Book One: The Pelting of this Pitiless Storm - The Hurt That Honor Feels
Lanny kept thinking: This must be the only man in France who can smile. At least it was the only one Lanny had met, and Lanny had done some traveling in this time of agony and grief. The man whose name was spelled backward the same as forward, and who all his life had taken this as an omen of good luck--this man was in power again; he was overcoming all his enemies, thousands of them, yes, even millions. He sat at his desk by the window of what had once been a luxurious hotel suite, and beamed upon his visitor, reminding him: 'It has happened just about as I told you, M. Budd.' Lanny said it was so, and thought that the death of something like a hundred and twenty-five thousand Frenchmen, and the captivity of ten or twelve times as many, signified less to Pierre Laval than the ability to say: 'C'est moi qui avait raison!'" - Chapter One from A World To Win
