An inspirational General by the name of Thomas-Alexandre Dumas 1762-1806, father of the noted author Alexandre Dumas; is the subject of our next Napoleonic release at Salute 25/4/2015 as he would have been facing the onslaught of an Austrian cavalry squadron crossing the bridge at Eisack river single handed!!
He was know as the "Black Count" and a force to be reckoned with.
