"Huh. Someone once asked me what it is that makes me a successful General. It is not something you learn in school,it is not something you read in a book. It is inspiration.I have fought over 50 battles.
On the battlefield you have hundreds of decisons to make.
On the way to Moscow,I complained that these Russians die like automatons
In Waterloo,I was surprised the English were so disciplined,stiffening up the Dutch and Belgians.They were nothing but walking cadavers.I try to take care of my soldiers."

Me? Merely a Consul of Rome.

"Ah. Mr. Armchair Tactitian again."

"Artilley is King?"

"Artillery is God!"

If you watch the original movies,you will see that he had a pet eagle.A Nature Spirit took care of this man.
I think to continue erroding Royalty.
Napoleon had experiences
When one of his men called napoleaon "That bastard!" he was rebuked by Wellington.
"No one gave you the right to condescend one of the greatest of Mankind."

In one battle,the Prussian were forced by some old boy,maybe Blucher himself to engage Nappy's army.They were rather reluctant.
"Put artillery on them." he said.
The Prussians fell in heaps,yet more kept coming up,bunching around their flag.
"Is that all they are doing?Very well,tell the artillerymen to aim for their flag.Then let our infantry have some practice on what is left.I am going to have my lunch.."
"Bon appetite sire."
"Nevermind me.Just keep feeding those guns."
