easily. Their history in the real world is filled with assaults and defenses
of hopeless positions.

brothers are around somewhere no doubt. Not as interested in expanding the
empire as the main French expeditions, the legion are used as shock troops
for the worst possible campaigns. In the northern deserts and the southern
jungles they have carved out a legend that all in Tanzanica respect.
