A Military History and Atlas of the Napoleonic Wars
by Ernest J. Esposito 1999


A detailed and comprehensive overview of the battles and campaigns of Napoleon between 1796 and 1815 - includes 169 color maps

Between 1798 and 1802 Austria, Russia, and Britain were joined in the Second Coalition against France. Napoleon continued to successfully lead the French armies and brought peace to France in 1802, ending the Second Coalition.

He tried to create peace within France by providing an amnesty to all political refugees, and filling his government offices with people of diverse political beliefs.

Because he had brought peace to the land, both domestically and in foreign affairs, Frenchmen rewarded Napoleon with the office of Consul For Life in 1802.
