The frogs didnt do so hot years later in the Franco-Prussian war of 1870 either, come to think of it they are on a centuries long losing streak...
You kind of forget their victories under Napoleon and what happened in 1848. YEs, since then they have been in decline.

(Never forget 9/11)
Well the Napoleon campaigns culminated in the horrendous trek out of Russia where General Winter ravaged the French troops...I hardly call that a victorious end to Napoleon's conquests
