Re: Brigade Generals: uniforms and charging

At Waterloo, of the senior FRENCH cavalry leadership four divisional commanders were wounded, nine brigadiers wounded, and one killed. Looks to me as though they were both brave and leading from the front.

Where a general of cavalry placed himself depended an circumstances. When, as at Waterloo, whole cavalry corps were being flung into the fray the brigade or divisional general might as well place himself at the front of his troops and give them a good example as be anywhere else.
