Napoleon’s greatest innovation was in making the corps, numbering 20,000 to 30,000 men, usually commanded by a marshal, and capable of giving battle alone, the basic unit of the army. A corps would ideally consist of two or more infantry divisions, a brigade of cavalry, six to eight companies of artillery, and a company of engineers.
