The history of France has been determined, and the French people defined, by a long series of military conflicts dating from antiquity to the present age. Throughout this time, France has been at the forefront of major European conflicts, and the French Army has played a critical role in developing the art of warfare. This book provides, for the first time in English, a comprehensive narrative of the military history of France from the time of the ancient Gauls to the present day. The work restores France and the French Army to a central role in the discussion of warfare in the Western world and conclusively demonstrates the prowess, expertise, and success of French arms on the battlefield. Bruce directly attacks the widespread popular notion of French military ineptness by clearly demonstrating how historically successful the French have been in military conflicts.
