In his highly personal introduction, he recounts, for example, the moving visit of the Duc d'Angoulême d'Angoulême and the Duc de Berri, Dampmartin recounts the history of the Dépôt de la Guerre and underlines the the importance of the documents preserved there: "Its exploitation alone can support the historiographer". the historiographer".
