Is Bertrand du Guesclin a good general in Evony?

Bertrand du Guesclin is a solid option for players using many Mounted Troops. He is very effective as both an Evony Monster Hunter General and an Evony Mounted PvP General.

He should not be used as a Defense General as most of his skills are only active in attack.
