Maréchal Steve Peluso
Général en Chef
La Grande Armée
My compliments and herein is submitted for your consideration l’Armée du Nord’s Muster and General Report for the period of April through June '03.
A key development over the last quarter has been the steady growth of the IIème Corps d'Armee. Under the steady leadership of le Comte de Suchet, GdD Jensen, the IIème Corps is now the largest in l'Armée du Nord and now encompasses three divisions of infantry, the 5ème through 7ème Divisions d'Infanterie, together with the 2ème Division de Cavalerie Légère. I am also pleased to report that le Comte de Garonne, Drew Stone, has received a richly deserved baton and been promoted to the rank of Maréchal. It is with sincere regret that I must announce the retirement of Col. Schulze as commander of the 7ème Division d'Infanterie, however the command of this division has passed into the capable hands of le Comte de Garonne, Maréchal Drew Stone. I also commend to everyone’s attention the spacious new headquarters of the IIème Corps d'Armée located at http://www.geocities.com/en_avant_iicorps/index.html.
The Ier Corps de Réserve de Cavalerie has completed its re-organization, the details of which are noted below.
