Re: A Quote from Blücher
In Response To: Re: A Quote from Blücher ()

Sorry for the incomplete information.
The full paragraph is

Un hussard, le vieux Blücher, au plus fort sa lutte contre Napoléon, dit le mot qui fixe la situation des deux armes auxiliaires : « Fichez-moi donc la paix avec vos hussards ; contre ce bougre-là, c'est du canon qu'il faut, et beaucoup de canon! »

Old Blücher, a hussar, at the height of his struggle with Napoleon, coined the phrase which records the place in war of the two auxiliary arms : 'Don't talk to me about your hussars; against that rascal it is guns we want, and plenty of guns!'

However, the background information is limited.

Thanks for your timely reply,
