General Bigeart


An all time favorite at Mage Design. Bigeard is a page of French history by himself. His legendary life and his actions in the 2 colonial wars fought for France in Indochina and Algeria inspired counter insurectional techniques around the military world…He is particularly noteworthy because he rose from enlisted as Second Class, the lowest possible rank, in 1936 and ultimately finished his career in 1976 with the rank of Lieutenant General (Général de corps d’armée).His last wish: have his ashes dropped over Dien Bien Phu…

Here are some of our favorite photos of the General.
