Cole's life in Paris

Paris was a place where Cole managed to be in the best of all possible worlds. His lies about serving in WWI with the allied forces allowed him to live his days and nights as a wealthy American in Paris while partying with the upper echelon of Paris; and still be considered a "war-hero" back home.
