FRANCE WAS PRACTICALLY DEAD.
Lack of money
No decisions were being made
INVASION OF THE BASTILLE
THE FIRST COALITION
To stop France's efforts.
(IN CRITICAL CONDITION)...
To many stunning victories.
26 year old General leads win against Austrians, and on from there
Main strategy is to surprise and disperse the opponents
Napoleon realizes that it's hopeless to attack oversea
British grow curious about what's happening
Heads to Egypt to break Britain from India
Tries to uncover French, but fails in attempts
FRANCE GOES ON A COMPLETE RAMPAGE ACROSS EGYPT.
VICTORIES DON'T LAST FOREVER.
France was absolutely cornered, with Turkey from the North and Britain from the east
With nowhere to go, started re-attacking the uprising Egyptian captures
Many have re-established confidence, France was once again losing
ON THE ROAD HOME...
Many of the Egyptian states start rebelling against the French Troops
This results in many Jaffians being tortured or drowned to death
France was done...again
BUT NAPOLEON WASN'T READY TO LOSE.
Napoleon leaves for France, leaves troops in Egypt
Troops stay until 1801
Second Coalition felt safe to attack, and to waste Napoleon's efforts
In response, Napoleon wasted
Napoleon offered to make peace.
WHEN THE SECOND COALITION SAID NO, NAPOLEON WENT AHEAD AND DESTROYED THE AUSTRIANS INSTEAD.
Britain decided to call a truce.
Treaty of Amiens called peace between the British and the Frenchmen
Britain was only up against France, causing a bit of a stalemate between the two nations
France was to have most of their colonies back, Britain was to restore Egypt
but do you really think that THE TWO TRUST EACH OTHER TO NOT ATTACK?
trafalgar wrecked napoleon's goals.
After Trafalgar, there was no more Overseas in mind
Spain had begun to distrust France, and cancelled their alliance
Proved the war was still going, fully expressed Britain's Navy
Made comeback through Austria and Russia's defeat, but France was worn down
So...He decided to STALL them out.
Shut down all of Europe's ports
Attempted to break off Britain's trade market (Which Britain heavily relied on for its Economy)
Tried to cause Depression in Britain
Many countries were forced to this because of the large expansion of the French Empire
Soon, Spain was the only one left...
Tried to conquer Russia in 1806, and instead of a prolonged fight, Russia offered a truce.
so napoleon payed them a little visit.
Invaded Spain, forced the King and his hier out the country
Made his brother, Joseph, king
Spain did not approve of this action. Many of their citizens began to throw revolts and Guerrila Wars began to come up. Napoleon's era was coming to an end.
Outsmarting the opponent lead to Napoleon's eventual downfall in 1812.
The invasion to russia he had planned left him with little supplies, as the russians had burnt it all.
he was forced to retreat and leave.
FEBUARY 26, 1815. NAPOLEON ESCAPED AND RETURNED TO FRANCE.
MANY PREVIOUS SUPPORTERS OF BONAPARTE ABANDONED THE ARMY THAT WAS MEANT TO SEND HIM BACK OUT.
AFRAID THAT HE WOULD END UP LIKE LOUIS THE 16TH, LOUIS THE 18TH ESCAPED TO GHENT, UK.
King Louis XVI forced the french monarch to convey the estates general
Clergy (1), nobility (2), commoners (3)
Commoners were mostly forgotten and left out
His last battle
Seventh Coalition prepared for war against the rebuilt France
France decided to attack Britain, then Prussia seperately
Wellington sent his men to the top of St. Jean, beating back any Frenchmen who tried to attack
Desperate, Napoleon sent his Imperial Guards (Bodyguards) to attack, but a hidden British army sent them all back
Prussians suddenly burst in while the British began moving forward, through the right flank of Bonaparte's Army
Through and through, the French army grew weak
Napoleon had no choice but to surrender
HE WAS EXILED TO ST HELENA, JUST FOR THAT EXTRA "MERCY" TOWARDS THE fRENCHMEN.
hE DIED IN 1821.
aND YET NOTHING CHANGED. aFTER 22 YEARS.
so where from here?
Steamboats preceded the sailing ships
Steamboats first proposed by American ambassador for Britain for the war of 1812
Ironclad warships were developed to strengthen the hull
Allowed smoother sides for aerodynamics
Guns became pivotal, with Artillery Shells
