New This Month: November 2012

By November 9, 2012

Follow me on:

This month we return to a narrative of the Napoleonic Wars. We start by seeing how Napoleon amazed Europe with success in Italy, then follow the emperor through the failures in Egypt and the luck against the Second Coalition to the heights of glory in the Austerlitz campaign. We also look at one of his best generals in Desaix, and one of his worst in Bernadotte, as well as his first wife, Josephine. Finally we take a quick look at the League of Armed Neutrality, which didn't last long but did involve a naval battle.
