Denis Guénoun

This chapter narrates an anecdote of René Guénoun following the war against Germany. When war was declared, Syria and Lebanon became French mandates for twenty years, and René was sent in Damascus to serve the military. However, after the war, few isolated officers attempted a coup, in which René was singled out as a leader. The Officer of Military Justice Third Class sent René Guénoun a summons to be tried for having incited a certain number of troops of the Eighty-First Regiment of Artillery and the Second Regiment of Zouaves, and diverting them from their military duties and from the obedience they owe to their officers in all matters bearing on the execution of laws and regulations. The court sentenced him to be imprisoned in Damascus, Syria for five years.
