During the brouhaha over the worm, someone (in this list, I thought)
recounted the ancedote about one of Napoleon's generals who disobeyed
orders and won a resounding victory in some battle.  Napoleon proceeded
to award him the Croix de France (or some similar award) for winning
the battle, and then had him put to death for disobeying orders.

Does anyone know the source of this story or the name of the battle/general?

Thanks.
