A brigadier general, if it is affected with a mission of “ground”, order usually a Brigade, unit made up of several regiments. The regiments on average cash approximately 1000 men, a brigade in general gathers ten thousands of men.

ReprocessThere exist brigadier generals called commonly “quarter of place”, because they are promoted generals with their retirement. They touch a retirement of colonel, but are entitled to life with 75% of reduction (like the other generals) to the SNCF. From where this name.
Other generals are called “six months”, i.e. they obtain this rank only six months before their departure with the retirement, without true command ad hoc .
