      Well, as I recall, the general was a 'General of Division' (two lines of gold
      embroidery & 2 stars on the eps) but has a general of Brigades sash (shot
      through with blue not red). But it was a magnificent film ans one where the
      technical advisor and costume designer knew their jobs and were allowed to do them.
      If only they were all so good!
