His Histoire de la milice francaise, &c. (1721) is superior to his Histoire de France, and may still be consulted with advantage.
The French army (about 7000 cavalry and 30,000 infantry) took ground exactly opposite to the enemy and in a similar formation, cavalry on the wings, infantry, including the milice des communes, in the centre, Philip with the cavalry reserve and the Oriflamme in rear of the foot.
