French infantry used an anachronistic tactical doctrine which placed more value in the bayonet than in firepower! French uniforms had hardly changed from the Franco-Prussian War with most arms boasting the famous garance (madder red) trousers. The French War Minister was reputed to have said, “Le pantalon rouge, c’est la France!” (Red trousers are France!)
