Marc,

Here is a quotation from Swords on Moreau which might (or might not) be helpful:

'Jean-Victor Moreau was a commanding figure, over 6 feet tall and stout. He was a cool, cautious, deliberate general who avoided risks, yet might explode into unexpected aggressiveness. Though the Revolution had guillotined his father, he served it loyally until 1797, when he was detected concealing Pichegru's pro-Royalist plottings and was stripped of his command. Though personally cold and inaccessible, he took the best care he could of his men and was much liked by them. He aided Napoleon's coup d'etat in 1799 but-egged on by his wife-became an increasingly reluctant subordinate. Pichegru involved him in the Bourbon's attempts to murder Napoleon. Napoleon exiled him, but he came back to the wars in 1813 as Tsar Alexander's military mentor. A French cannonball killed him soon afterward at Dresden-an incident both armies regarded as a probable divine judgment.'

Sincerely,
Kevin
