Good Soldiers & War…

“To have good soldiers, a nations must always be at war.”

Napoleon Bonaparte (1769 to 1821)

Also known as Napoleon I, the Corsican or the Little Corporal, he was a French general, first consul of France (1799-1804), and emperor of the French (1804-1814/15), one of the most celebrated personages in the history of the West.

He revolutionised military organisation and training; sponsored the Napoleonic Code, the prototype of later civil-law codes; reorganised education; and established the long-lived Concordat with the papacy.
