We Spartans are descended from Hercules himself. Taught never to retreat, never to surrender. Taught that death in the battlefield is the greatest glory he could achieve in his life.
Spartans…the finest soldiers the world has ever known


Un classique..

Discussing with a captured British officer : “You French fight for money, while we British fight for honour.” “A man fights for what he lacks the most!” said Surcouf

officier britannique capturé dit au cours d’une discussion avec Surcouf ceci:  ” Vous les Francais vous vous battez pour l’argent , tandis que nous britanniques nous nous battons pour l’honneur ”

Surcouf lui répondit : ” Un homme se bat pour ce qu’il lui manque le plus ”

Here come the CORSAIRS !!!

The Corsairs were privateers working for the King of France, attacking the ships of France’s enemies. In the Caribbean sea, the corsairs worked for the french governors and were called “Flibustiers”.

Some anecdotes :

– The Saint Michael’s Mount resisted to the English during all the Hundred Years War, defended and supplied by Corsairs.
After the final french victory, the kings of France changed their Patron Saint Denis for Saint Michael.

– Jean Marant (Marant means “funny” in French) was a corsair known for his extrem cruelty. During the siege of Calais in 1346-1347, he heroically supplied the city two times by the sea, slaloming between english war-sheeps and watchtowers.
