I don't see Napoleon as a failure or anything less of a great leader. The reason they exiled him to Elba and eventually St. Helena and had the British military guard him was cause they feared him and his power.

seriously, these other monarchies who tried to have their way with Napoleon were just jerks. you see, he made France go back on its feet, gone to fight the government that France have installed, and made his own name. it is like bullying but the bully is a total idiota. they dont learn

@Madhavi Reddy Well that was actually the plan, but Spain was occupied by 300,000 troops and the Spanish army was nonexistent, leaving only 53,000 British, 27,000 Portuguese, and 55,000 Spanish to fight them. The best part is that they somehow managed to win.

If you think about it Napoleon was not defeated by his ambition, pride, the mistake of invading Russia or unchanging tactics long after other nations learned to counter them. No, what defeated Napoleon was the fact that his actual worst enemy (Britain) was untouchable due being an island nation, focusing primarily on navy and having a huge colonial empire filling their coffers. Everything else was just a result of that fact. If anything this showed me that is the British Isles were a peninsula we'd probably learn in school about the eventual fracture of the de-facto French Empire post-Napoleon and not about his failure.

Who the fuck told you that Napoleon win Borodino? it was his biggest defeat.
The Death Star
The Death Star 12 timmar sedan
@Kpa6uK_ApKaLLIa Kutuzov’s plan was to destroy Napoleon in a war of attrition, but the Tsar forced him to commit to battle, he lost that battle. The Russian army was beaten, though not decisively like at Austerlitz or Friedland. There are two different types of victories: Tactical and Strategic, Borodino was a tactical victory for the French as they achieved their short term goals of beating the Russian army and capturing Moscow, but it was a strategic victory for the Russians as the Russian army wasn’t decisively beaten and retreated in good order to fight another day, this combined with the fact that Tsar Alexander refused to make peace meant that Kutuzov’s plans changed little. And the Russians wouldn’t have had to burn Moscow in the first place if it wasn’t for them losing at Borodino. What came after Borodino was his biggest defeat, not Borodino itself, and that too was on the campaign scale, not battle scale.
Kpa6uK_ApKaLLIa 13 timmar sedan
@The Death Star yeah yeah, typical western way of thinking. Did it helped Napoleon? No. He lost way to much men and supplies, Kutuzovs plan was to weaken Napoleon, not defeat him in combat. Russian army wasnt beaten, it retreated in order, and start to recieve reinforcements. The battle winner is not who stays on the field, but those who reaches hes goal. Goal of Napoleon was to beat the russian army, russian army wasnt beaten. Russian goal was to weaken Napoleon cause winter is coming =). And this goal was reached. Napoleon takes Moscow after this battle, but ooops. It Burns to hell with all supplies.

@Kpa6uK_ApKaLLIa Borodino was a costly victory, but a victory nonetheless. France inflicted more casualties on the Russians and the Russians had to retreat and abandon Moscow. Leipzig was his actual worst defeat.
Kpa6uK_ApKaLLIa 13 timmar sedan
@The Death Star at leipzig he was already defeated, it was an agony. At borodino he loses way to much men, and supplies being shitlot kilometers war from his homeland. It was colossal defeat. Russian army wasnt beaten, and it was home so it has shorter supply line. The fate of Napoleon was decided at borodino. Everything that was after was just kicking of dead Napoleons body.

British Army: Small but professional, had probably the most success in the Napoleonic Wars without suffering a single major defeat. French Army: The largest army led by some of the most talented generals of the time, composed of hardened veterans from 1804-1807 but began to decline near 1808, relying more and more on numbers rather than quality. Russian Army: Large and very well disciplined led by good generals, probably the most instrumental in defeating Napoleon after the Royal Navy. Austrian Army: Large but outdated and led by poor officers with a few exceptions. Overall a mediocre Army. Prussian Army: The 2nd smallest army here after the British led by the most talented generals of the time. Unfortunately the quality of the army itself wasn’t as good as that of the others.

Hey do you think you could make a video on the situation in venezuela? A lot of people display it badly either to back up their socioeconomic ideology (and not caring what happened to us citizens) or just being silent. As someone who lives in venezuela currently, I trust you to accurately tell our story :) to spread the word of what’s happening. Also It would be more digestible for a lot of people and they’d be more keen to listen.
