The Swiss-born novelist and poet Frederick-Louis Sauser, better known as Blaise Cendrars (1887-1961) became a naturalized French citizen in 1916 following his service in the French Foreign Legion during the First World War. He became known as the "left-handed poet" after loosing his right arm at the battle of Champagne. Cendrars, who befriended such artists and writers as Chagall, Leger, Modigliani, Guillaume Appollinaire, Jean Cocteau, Henry Miller, Hemingway, Dos Passos, and others, was a writer of considerable influence in the European modernist movement. Henry Miller called him his "great idol" and spoke of him as "a man he really venerated as a writer". Though designated as a Jewish writer of French Expressionism by the Gestapo, he managed to survive the Second World War in occupied France.
