L'honneur de Saint-Arnaud by François Maspero( Book )
10 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in French and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book tells the story of a very edified Marshal of France who during his lifetime was covered in honors for Sainte-Beuve. His "critical morality" was an example for the youth. In reality, massacres and rampant lure for gain were the only springs of his life to Victor Hugo, who said, "The General's length of service of a jackal." Achilles St. Arnaud built his career on the conquest of Algeria. After taking Constantine, he boasted: "I felt a little butcher." With other generals, he applied the strategy of scorched earth to starve people, and "enfumades" to exterminate all the inhabitants of villages. During the coup of 2 December, he died from uncontrollable diarrhea after the Battle of the Alma, as the leader of an expedition aimed against Russia - already - to establish a new world order. He then had a state funeral. However this work is not a simple biography, but a piece of the dark side of the history of nineteenth-century France
