    true most soldiers would take the chance for a little plunder, but this is different to the French army where it was organized - any seemingly the soldiers saw an unofficial contract they risked their lives and Boney granted them the plunder.

      Where was it 'organized' in the French army? Some sources would be helpful here. And where did Napoleon 'grant them the plunder?'
      We are not now that strength which in old days
      Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
      Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
      To strive to seek to find and not to yield.
