education in the MUitary Academy of St. Cyp. In 1837 he entered an artillery regiment as Lieutenant. His talents soon attracted atten- tion« and in particular that of Marshal Bugeaud^ who, in recogni- tion of his bravery displayed in the battles of Sidi-Yussuf and Isly, made him his Adjutant, and in- trusted him with most important commissions. His services, circum- spection, and bravery in the Crimean war, gained for him the rank of a General of Division. In this capacity he received a command in the Italian campaign of 1859. On the conclusion of peace he was rele- gated to the Ministry of War, and received the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour. Niel had in- tended him for his successor as Minister of War, but the latter's celebrated brochure on French mili- tary affairs had drawn down upon him the displeasure of the Imperial Court. Before the war of 1870-71, General Trochu held command of the Army Division in Toulouse, which Niel and Lebceuf had held before him. In the crisis which followed the battle of Sedan, he was made Governor of Paris and Com- mander-in-Chief of all the forces destined for the defence of the capital, which he held until the city surrendered to the German hosts. In Oct., 1871, he was elected Presi- dent of the Council-General for Morbihan, but he afterwards re- signed this })ost, and he has Uved in retirement since Jan. 1873. His pamphlet on "L'Armee Fran<;aise en 1867" reached its 20th edition in 1870. In 1873 he published a work entitled "Pour la V^ritd et pour la Justice,'* in justification of the Government of the National Defence.
