For years, under Napoleon, the French Army fought hard and won numerous important victories. Although many died, they were a united cause and made much progress under Napoleon up until his defeat at Leipzig on October 19th, 1813. However, with Napoleon now gone, new leaders indicted him as a thief and a bandit, effectively discrediting both Napoleon and his soldiers who had worked so hard for their nation’s cause. One soldier, Paul, writes in “Leadership and Demands of the Imperial Guard” against this newfound sentiment.
