WPMILHIST Assessment[edit]

A very nice article, but the introduction could use some work, I think. Firstly, as it stands, it emphasizes that he was born at Paris (which should probably read in Paris), and mentions his lineage and relations, not his significance. The very bottom of the article seems to indicate he was head of state just before Napoleon. Isn't this significant? Shouldn't his position in the Council of Ministers, or his role in Napoleon's rise to power, be mentioned over his identity as "a general, son of so-and-so, brother of so-and-so"?

Moustache, no beard[edit]

Is it true that he was the first General to be photographed with a moustache, but no beard (in the Prince Albert style), thus establishing this less-usual fashion, which became the standard way of separating military from naval officers?(86.140.6.209 (talk) 23:36, 9 April 2009 (UTC))
