*Notable* French-only military victories include:
1) The 100 Years War
2) That's it.
The Crimean War doesn't count. Although the French played an important war, the primary players were the British and the Russians.
William the Conqueror of Normandy (William the Bastard as he was then known) was most likely of Celtic or Viking descent, not actually a Frenchman.
Napoleon was actually bad for France, it was worse off after he was finished with it than it had been. At least it was somewhat respectable before. (Although the French people were better off under the psychopath Napoleon than under the incompetent French royalty)
Indo-china...That was as pointless as the American attempt later on.
And Kung-fu Jesus, losing 50,000 troops over fourteen years is better, not worse, than losing 90,000 in less time.
France sucks. Get over it, France.
