Frenchmen, aristocrats and common folk met terrible deaths under the blade of the Guillotine. The chaos lasted almost ten years and finally subsided with the coming of Napoleon Bonaparte who was to become the "Emperor" and soon after the scourge of Europe.
Napoleon's Armies took on the entire world almost bringing many Nations to their knees.
His genius for Military Tactics and the devotion of his magnificent troops almost made him Master of Europe but finally he was routed in 1815 at the Battle of Waterloo.
Most infantrymen carried this Napoleonic Infantry Cutlass, known as a Briquet Sword, as a second line of defense after their Charlesville Flintlock Musket. A clasic French sidearm from the Napoleonic Wars!
