The Legion of Honour, a military and civil order of merit, was the highest award of the French republic, created by Napoleon to honour war service and extraordinary military bravery and service in times of war. The award of the Legion of Honour automatically carried with it the Croix de Guerre (Military Cross), the highest French military medal.
