French casualties and commanding officerEdit

Good afternoon,

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.

Thank you.

(Sorry for my english, i'm french)

Incorrect labels on map scalesEdit

The scales on the map should be switched - i.e miles should be kilometres etc. Ammilne (talk) 13:41, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

Spurious illustrationEdit

The blue tile illustration depicts a naval battle, and has nothing to do with the subject of the article, other than the fact it is located in a building near the battle site. Ammilne (talk) 14:21, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
