Popular and scholarly history presents a one dimensional image of Napoleon as an inveterate instigator of war who repeatedly sought large scale military conquests General Franceschi and Ben Weider dismantle this false conclusion in The Wars Against Napoleon, a brilliantly written and researched study that turns our understanding of the French emperor on its head.AvoidingPopular and scholarly history presents a one dimensional image of Napoleon as an inveterate instigator of war who repeatedly sought large scale military conquests General Franceschi and Ben Weider dismantle this false conclusion in The Wars Against Napoleon, a brilliantly written and researched study that turns our understanding of the French emperor on its head.Avoiding the simplistic cliches and rudimentary caricatures many historians use when discussing Napoleon, Franceschi and Weider argue persuasively that the caricature of the megalomaniac conqueror who bled Europe white to satisfy his delirious ambitions and insatiable love for war is groundless By carefully scrutinizing the facts of the period and scrupulously avoiding the sometimes confusing cause and effect of major historical events, they paint a compelling portrait of a fundamentally pacifist Napoleon, one completely at odds with modern scholarly thought This rigorous intellectual presentation is based upon three principal themes The first explains how an unavoidable belligerent situation existed after the French Revolution of 1789 The new France inherited by Napoleon was faced with the implacable hatred of reactionary European monarchies determined to restore the ancient regime All out war was therefore inevitable unless France renounced the modern world to which it had just painfully given birth The second theme emphasizes Napoleon s determined efforts bordering on an obsession, argue the authors to avoid this inevitable conflict The political strategy of the Consulate and the Empire was based on the intangible principle of preventing or avoiding these wars, not on conquering territory Finally, the authors examine, conflict by conflict, the evidence that Napoleon never declared war As he later explained at Saint Helena, it was he who was always attacked not the other way around His adversaries pressured and even forced the Emperor to employ his unequalled military genius After each of his memorable victories Napoleon offered concessions, often extravagant ones, to the defeated enemy for the sole purpose of avoiding another war Lavishly illustrated, persuasively argued, and carefully illustrated with original maps and battle diagrams, The Wars Against Napoleon presents a courageous and uniquely accurate historical idea that will surely arouse vigorous debate within the international historical communityVIEWS Weider and Franceschi s outstanding new must read book shatters the myth of the so called Napoleonic Wars and compels a long overdue reevaluation of the image of Napoleon as simply a war loving conqueror Jerry D Morelock, PhD, ARMCHAIR GENERAL Editor in Chief May 2008 issue the authors argue strongly, persuasively, and intellectually for what is, essentially, the other side of the usual story They will surely provoke debate within the historical community wherever there is interest in this period Recommended for all libraries adding to their Napoleonic collections D Poremba, Library Journal, 01 2008 supported with maps and diagrams, this courageous book is a very intriguing read Skirmish Magazine 04 08
