General LaSalle

May 6, 2024 · in Uncategorized · 2 · 167

General LaSalle was a legendary figure, considered the finest light cavalry commander of his day.

Known for his daring and audacity, as were so many of Napoleon's commanders, he is quoted as saying that "any hussar who is not dead by the age of 30 is a good-for-nothing!"

True to his credo, he fell in the Battle of Wagram in 1809 fighting against the armies of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the ripe old age of 34.
