Antoine Delau, the omnipresent witness *LINK*

Antoine Deleau was a lucky fellow:

At Leipzig, he was but 30 paces away from Poniatowski, and heard the drowning prince exclamate these last words: "Dieu ma confié l'honneur des Polonais et je ne le rendrai qu'à lui !"

At Fontainebleau, he was 5 paces away from général Petit.

At Waterloo, he was "near" to général Cambronne and could hear both versions of his famous exclamation.
