“The Cathedral of Notre Dame in Coustances was the first great Gothic church we saw in our army advance. It was famous for the ‘dim religious light’ of its sparkling windows. Blasting bombs had shattered every one, and the interior was bright under the August sun. This made the architectural excellence more plainly seen since it was first built 700 years ago.”
