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.

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
