French casualties and commanding officerEdit
First, i'm not sure we can give a specific number of french casualties. Marshal Masséna give a fewer number of french casualties and a largest number for british for exemple (Of course, he lies probably a little). Plus, i'm not sure we can say that Marshal Masséna lead totally the battle. He just give vaguely orders before the battle (He don't want fight this battle, it is his officers, in particular Marshal Ney who was very excited) ans his officers fought independently this battle without orders by Masséna. It was more many battles than One battle.
