French Text: At Austerlitz, these professionals, fanatics of their Emperor they loved and admired, made short work of the novice recruits of some regiments who opposed them. Quality offset their numerical inferiority, and Napoleon should not have forgotten that this tool is necessary for victory. This unique regiment forged a camp at Boulogne, and although they may deteriorate gradually in the Revolutionary campaigns, the genius of the great leader remains intact. This progressive wear, losses of faithful officers and executives, was compounded by the Spanish mistake. They developed refractories and deserters, especially in poorly motivated conscripts taken from the conquered countries. But in December 2, 1805, there were in the Grand Army heroes, veterans, and brave shouting loudly: "Long live the Emperor!" They deserved that Napoleon told them: "Soldiers, I am pleased with you!"
