Hunters who came to kill the Beast

Like I often say, one same person can not have all the knowledge necessary to understand the case of the Beast of Gévaudan. There are so many people who took part (soldiers, nobles, wolf-hunters, peasant, abbots, judges, etc...), that it seems logical to me that there are professionnal in each domain.
I'm more like an "info collector". I don't have any peculiar competence except my logical sense, but I've met through the years many professionnals in these domains we need. I'm gratefull to all of them.

Considering military matters, so many mistakes have been made - sometimes since the case itself! - all through the years that it is hard to seperate truth from ignorance. And truth there is in army's history, regardless the case of the Beast.
For this section, specialist Patrick Berthelot has accepted to settle here in the Shadow of the Beast to share with everyone his discoveries for free.

Some of the texts are from M. Berthelot himself, but I've also put my opinion.
But that's only my own private personnal opinion...

Safe journey, may the Beast keep you!
