Invented the beret as we know it (See Royal Tank Regiment) but wear it pulled down on the wrong side.

General Patton was quoted as saying... "I'd rather have a German Panzer Division in front of me than a French Division behind me", which just about say what he thought of the French military capability.

Don't seem to have won a war lately, but I certainly wouldn't want to mess with them. Foreign Legion is mainly made up of Frenchmen claiming to be either natives of Switzerland or Belgium (See French Foreign Legion).

Recently standardised on one pattern of camouflage uniform, called CCE (Camouflage Centre Europe). Looks vaguely US.
