[Autom. eng. transl.] The Great War scandal "illustrated" to children: Flambeau, Benjamin Rabier's war dog Benjamin Rabier (1864-1939) writes and illustrates the story of Flambeau, a volunteer dog of war, who actively participates through his wiles to the a patriotic effort through all the crucial moments of conflict, from mobilization to expected victory. In our intervention, we analyze the elements of this modern fable: the narrator and his enunciative posture, the lexicon that French children are supposed to know in wartime, privileged vector of stereotyped visions of the enemy, and the rhetorical processes put to the service of patriotic propaganda for children.
