Wow.

My son just learned a bit about him when we played out the Battle of Auerstadt last weekend (with Snappy Nappy).

Wow!

Yeah, that would be Great.

Morand, Friant and Gudin were a powerhouse working with Davout!

It would be nice to see his remains repatriated and reburied with honour.

Fascinating and nice to see collaboration between the old enemies.
But why the Japan Times? If the answer is that they are the only newspaper that followed the story writing in English, then it is still surprising that they followed it, and that some of the larger English speaking newspapers appear not to have.

Wow, this is fascinating.

Thanks 42flanker. Still mildly surprised at the Japanese interest, but I guess the world (and world history) is a bit of a village these days.

If this is an accurate assessment, Gudin's body should be sent back to France for honorable internment.

He and Davout were also friends, and Davout felt his loss deeply.
