His part in Jourdan's great victory at Wattignies was so important that the credit of the day has often been assigned to Carnot.
In 1794 we find him as brigadier attached to the army of the Sambre et Meuse, and after Jourdan's victory at Fleurus he was appointed a general of division.
The second is described below, and the third and fourth, incidents of Jourdan's campaign of 1794, under French Revolutionary Wars.
On the 13th of October 1795 he fought a brilliant rearguard action at the bridge of Neuwied, and in the offensive campaign of 1796 he was Jourdan's most active and successful lieutenant.
Ernouf, the grandson of Jourdan's chief of staff, published in 1867 a valuable biography of Kleber.
