According to his obituary, Luce was drafted during his sophomore year at Dartmouth College. "He landed in Normandy in 1943, and participated in campaigns in Northern France, Germany and Central Europe. In 1946 he was honorably discharged with the rank of Staff Sergeant." After completing his undergraduate degree, Luce earned an M.A. and Ph.D. in French studies from Yale University. He was "an acknowledged specialist on the works of Louis Ferdinand Celine, publishing four books and several articles on this controversial author accused of collaborating with the Germans in World War II. After his retirement from the university, he maintained his love of the French language and translated three never-translated or badly translated novels by Jules Verne." One copy located in OCLC, at the U.S. Army War College.
