nothing" "Character is victory organized"

Napoleon is pictured here writing a letter.
As seen is his previous letters, he used lots of propoganda to trick his enemy into siding with him. One of the main propoganda techniques he used in his letters was Plain Folk. He brought himself down to his enemies level to make them think he was a nice person. This portrait portrays Napoleon getting ready for battle. His men are standing behind him, prepared to die for their country. The propoganda used in this portrait is Pinpointing the Enemy. 1. This source is descriptive. Nobody can just make this picture up. Napoleon went into battle and this is what the portrait portrays.
2. This source describes behavior. There are no ideas presented about Napoleon's beliefs. It just shows him getting ready for battle.
