Where does the term "La Grande Battles" come from or what does it mean? I´m translating the rules to Spanish and that expression is difficult to translate... "La Grande" is French and singular, "Battles" is plural...
Can someone help?

Can't really help you as it's quite ugly in French and doesn't make much sense. As you've correctly pointed out, "La Grande" is singular" and "Battles" is plural so... Didn't think this title would make it in the official release but somehow it did.

Maybe it make more sense for an English-speaking player? French seems to be used "for flavor", even if it's incorrect?

Yeah it's a weird name. Almost seems like intentionally jokey Franglish.

I also shuddered, when reading 'La Grande Battles'. It's like a chinese man in an elevator: Wong on so many levels...

The Great Battles is what I believe they were after. So, your second choice,(Les Grandes Batailles) would have been appropriate.

Seems like they couldn't decide whether to use French or English so went for both. I'm looking forward to getting this but cringe every time I read it.

Oh well, C'est la war I suppose.
