Francois de la Noue (1531-1591) was a Huguenot captain in the 16th century. He took part in the capture of Orleans (1567) during the second Huguenot war and lost his arm as a result of a wound sustained at the siege of Fontanay (1570). He then wore an artificial iron arm and received the moniker "Bras-de-Fer", or "Iron Arm". In 1580 when he was again fighting on behalf of the Protestants, La Noue was captured by the Spanish, and while in prison, he wrote his Discours. His work had a profound impact on soldiers of all nations, especially because he wrote about war as a human drama. Text in French.
