Art of Paul Deacon
mixed force of French emigres and British regulars landed
in Brittany to take back the region from revolutionaries.
17,000 men, however, received a terrible shock when confronted
by a waiting army under General Hoche.
The emigres suffered more than 13,000 men killed, wounded
or captured while the French lost 500 of their 13,000 troops.
The British were safely returned home by the Royal Navy.
