A not-that-good or even pretty bad movie overall, even excluding the historical aspects, imho (but I'm completely bisaed as a French guy), but an excellent quiz!

Thanks! I was wondering what your opinion would be. It seems most of France probably didn't like it

"Napoleon often charged into battle on calvary."

There seems to be a typo in that.

Otherwise, great quiz, and a good idea.
