Bazancourt, César Lécat, Baron de (bäz-ä-kör’). A French writer of fiction and works on military science; born in Paris, 1810; died there, Jan. 25, 1865. The novelty of his theories of warfare and the merits of his style imparted very general interest to ‘The Crimean Expedition’ and ‘The Campaign in Italy in 1859.’ He also wrote ‘Georges de Montagnard’ and ‘The Princess Pallianci,’ novels; as well as ‘The Secrets of the Sword,’ a manual of fencing.
