Find my General

No one knew where the one-legged General Gudin was buried. This childhood friend of Napoleon died from a cannonball wound at the start of France’s 1812 invasion of Russia. Then in 2019, French and Russian archaeologists started digging for his remains around the Smolensk Fortress. So, could he be found and given full military honors in his homeland?
