Product Description

"They growled and followed him always ..." "They felt the fire and the powder," wrote Chateaubriand... These old men had a passionate worship for Napoleon, who said,"I pass for a terrible man in the salons, but not among the soldiers."
In fact, the Emperor had for his soldiers a kind of paternal tenderness. He lived in the midst of his troop, often ate with his men; And his soldiers gave him this affection, sometimes going as far as idolatry.
Napoleon at Saint Helena confided to Las Cases "they had the instinct for truth and sympathy, they knew me their protector, if need be their avenger!" Of course, all the forced marches, the bivouacs in the open air, the sometimes incomprehensible maneuvers, the problematic or even nonexistent supplies made these brave three-haired grumbling, which earned them the famous nickname of "grognards".
But these men were still walking behind their sacred eagles, ready to "eat the earth," waving the skin of their brow to bring down their teddy-bear to their eyes; their terrible look and contempt for rage, through their mustaches, showed their teeth like tigers, and provoked an unspeakable fear in the enemy; and when they wielded in a furious movement, their bayonets pointed, and the sword-lighter ready to burst forth from its scabbard, they made the adversary tremble and frighten him until the rout.
The grunts, to whom Ulm was asked for more efforts to complete the victory, murmured, thinking that their fidelity was being abused; Napoleon replied to their commanders of unity: "They are right, but it is to spare their blood that I make them feel so much fatigue."
From then on, the riflemen, the grenadiers and the vaulters subdued, set off again at once, penetrated of admiration for a chef who cares so much about their lives. And at the end of the epic on April 20, 1814, when he climbs to Fontainebleau, in the sedan that takes him into exile, all these old soldiers cry at the thought of losing their God of battles.
The latter, moved to tears, embraces their general and their flag; "Officers and soldiers who have remained faithful to me to the end, receive my thanks; I can not embrace you all, but the kisses that I give to your Eagle, resound in posterity; Goodbye, my children, goodbye! " These grunts, we will see them again later, eternally faithful, heroic at the evening of Waterloo" The guard dies, but does not surrender ". THE PRINCE'S WOMEN represented this soldier on a double scale of the usual so that our modellers could better express the details. Height of the character: 21 cm"
