France did have some glory days in the military field through Napoleon's Empire, but have had very little military achievements of any true merit since. I will remind the Pro that they have the BoP.

While France may have some awesome food, it is not the "best country" as my opponent says. France was steamrolled by Hitler and is honestly pretty wimpy. Outside of the French Revolution and Napoleon's Reign, France has been pretty pathetic.

I thin that we are all forgetting Napoleon. He is the best military leader in history. He defined the terms of war and came up with tactics used by other military generals today and in the future.

Considering that France is such a young country, I doubt that could possibly be the case.

Either way, no definitions and no clear direction for the debate, so it's really not set up well enough to take on.

Well I hope someone does, it'd be interesting. Lets say greatest as in a romantic sense. An accomplishment of large scope against all odds, which others would be hard pressed to repeat.

Who would accept such a topic? Also, what the heck do you mean by greatest? As in sheer size of armies? Or amount of victories?
