Because of Napoleon’s selfishness when conquering other countries he is considered a tyrant. Even though Napoleon was a tyrant, he still had many accomplishments to help benefit France. Napoleon ended the French revolution, therefore ending many of the country’s problems. Before Napoleon, there was constant violence, acts for revolution, and economic instability. Napoleon overthrew the Directory in a coup d’etat in 1799 and was the beginning of the Napoleonic Era.
When Napoleon invaded Russia he lost many men in the Russian cold causing France a small economic loss. He was obsessed with taking over more countries and although he was good at it he couldn’t win every time. Or in the political aspect of France Napoleon fought for freedom from the King yet he immediately becomes emperor after the revolution. Well wasn’t that what he was just fighting for, no individual ruler? Next Napoleon censors the society.
Historians have studied everything there is to know about Napoleon Bonaparte in order to find the key distinguishing features that set him apart from all other military leaders of his time. Up until 1807—the date that many would argue was the year of his decline, the Emperor of France was gaining power, glory, and his army was sweeping victory after victory. While many historians believe that Napoleon’s military success came primarily from factors excluding his personal contributions, the more probable truth is that no other man could have changed and excelled at the art of war while ruling and empire in the way that Napoleon Bonaparte did. It was his unique, mental gifts, his decision-making skills on and off the battlefield, and his ability to adapt that made him so successful up to 1807. Some historians can argue that Napoleon gained his success from the slow progression of other nation’s armies through the modernization of warfare.
The success of the French troops can be based on many factors: Napoleon’s “new” - but very successful- way of making war, the superb commanders (Masséna and Augurea) Napoleon had underneath him and, the poor organisation and communication between his opponents. For example: the British and Austria had no treaties but were supposedly allies. In 1796 Napoleon newly appointed as the head of the Army in Italy quickly set his soldiers into action as a way to boost their morale and so Napoleon could show his capabilities to silence those who doubted him both alongside him and back in Paris. The army had been poorly looked after and had not won a battle in years. So he quickly secured a loan from his friends his the Directory (Barras) and spent it all on equipment and supplies.
A war was planned between Austria and a mixture of French and Piedmontese troops, with a hope for victory in favour of Piedmont. If this victory occurred, the Austrian territories in Northern Italy would join with Piedmont to form the Kingdom of Upper Italy. Cavour was successful in provoking a war with Austria in 1859 but things seemed doomed when Piedmont could only produce 20,000 men with Austria having an army of around 110,000. This is where Napoleon kept to his word, producing 200,000 soldiers, forming the majority of the army due to fight Austria. With French intervention, Austria seemed to worry after already being beaten at the battles of Magenta and Solferino.
As a result, it triggered a war between France and Britain. The Americans were involved in the war on the side of the British, but played a small role in the war. As a result, on 3 May 1744, a letter from Versailles was sent out telling of the declaration of war between Britain and France. The colony of New France began as an economic venture on the part of the mother country, France. It all came to an end because the French never viewed New France more than an economic venture and New France evidently fell.
What are the short and long term effects of the Russian revolution. The short term effects of the Russian revolution are Russia dropped out of World War One. With Russia out the war it meant that Germany could bring more troops to fight in France where there was a stale mate giving Germany an advantage advantage over entente powers. Russia also had to give up one third of its population, one third of its agricultural land and three quarters of its industry to Germany in the harsh peace treaty (Treaty of Brest-Litovsk).They tried delaying the matters by refusing to the treaty. But the Germans just started to invade so Russia had no choice but to accept the treaty.
This is evident when he conquered Egypt controlled by the Turkish, then finally defeated the Turks in 1799 (Moore). Because of Napoleon's strategic warfare, although outnumbered, his army was able to defeat the Russian and Austrian army on December 2, 1805. And by 1806, Napoleon's army controlled much of the western region of Europe (Delfigalo). Napoleon was sought as a possible national leader. As a result, several French politicians over through the Directory on November 9, 1799.
The most famous revolution during this period was the French Revolution. The monarchy had been restored, the feudal privileges were abolished and new codes of law were created under Napoleon's conquest. There was a larger amount of people that were effected during these revolutions rather than the ones that Latin America had. Despite having wars for independence from direct, political control from overseas, power was taken by the Creole and mazombo elites. Their economy was also not the best and they eventually relied on the former colonizers.
What caused the downfall of Napoleon? There are a number of factors that all work together to ultimately cause the downfall of Napoleon as emperor of France. The smaller factors that helped lead to Napoleon's downfall are as follow: Napoleon defeated more and more European countries and he started becoming proud. He began to believe that he could conquer the world. Therefore he would not listen to other wise diplomats, such as Talleyrand.
