what is a french general?

An extinct species that once was quite formidable. Think Napoleon, or even Lafayette for that matter.

Although technically Lafayette was not a General, at least in the French Army.

Napoleon was Corsican, Captain. Italian, actually.

France's last truly successful general was probably Charles Martel.
