Hurrah! I’ve finished my first edit of the first draft manuscript. It’s 195,000 words. To paraphrase another (earlier) author: “It’s not the end, nor is it the beginning. But perhaps one might say that it’s the end of the beginning.” ⁦⁩ ⁦

Haha. So when I say the view of the French position, I mean from the allied point of view looking towards la belle alliance. So I think I agree.

On land he’d get overweight. And on ship he’d end up leaning down and muscling up. Steven would usually have his diet set in order to improve his health under such circumstances

A podcast called the Napoleonicist might need to prioritise other subjects. If I get time and the right guest, I’ll blab about it tho.

Might have been safer. Not sure he shouldn’t have just ran for it anyway. He was completely guilty and though rightly undeserving of becoming such an example, putting himself in the hands of the Bourbons was utter folly.

Pretty much. Well ... not always, depends on how romanticised they losers become. But Given the comparisons here. Washington and the Parliamentarians rebelled against ‘bad rule’. The old nugget that semi bypasses threatening the King. Ney’s rebellion was more direct

Whatever personal issues might have been with the monarch. There’s no getting around Ney’s actions constituted out and out treason.

As both Washington & the Parliamentarians were rightfully declared rebels until they won, I think you may have proved my point ;)

Napoleon’s absurd micromanaging is a topic we didn’t have time for, but that definitely contributed to their performance.

Pledges in those days for army personnel would usually be to the King. The constitution of France at that time was a touch confused but, it’s absolutely the truth that whatever, he swore and oath to he broke it by turning coat
