1872 Original Engraving, French General L J TROCHU, Surrendered Paris, 1870

A good reminder of French militrary leadership through history. Trochu was France’s best general and put in charge of the defense of Paris when the Prussians came knocking in 1870. He formulated an elaborate defense, which quickly turned out not to work, so, with no Plan B or Brits or Americans to defend the city, surrendered it.
