      • But, Problems Are Forming:
      • Napoleon’s control over other countries makes them realize that they are more loyal to their own people than Napoleon
      • France’s Empire is huge and difficult to control
      • Napoleon was his own worst enemy!
    • … And Then Things Fall Apart!
      • Three Costly Mistakes:
      • The Continental System
      • The Peninsular War
      • The Invasion of Russia
    • Napoléon’s Major Military Campaigns Trafalgar (Lord Nelson: Fr. Navy lost!)  Britain France  1805: Sea Power
    • Battle of Trafalgar
    • Continental System - November 1806
      • A blockade designed to cut England off from Europe
        • Napoleon’s navy lost at Trafalgar, so direct naval conflict out of question
        • To destroy British trade, undermine it economically
        • To exclude it from Europe’s affairs
    • Problems with Continental System
      • Was not executed correctly - weakened British trade, did not destroy it
      • British retaliated, made own blockade, and stopped all neutral ships going to Europe
        • Including American ships, causing War of 1812 (only war in which U.S. invaded by foreign power)
      • Weakened economy of France and lands controlled by Napoleon
    • The Peninsular War - 1808
      • Portugal ignored Continental System
      • Napoleon sent army through Spain to overthrow Royal Family
      • Spanish towns rioted in response, so Napoleon deposed Spanish king and made brother king of Spain and Portugal
      • Port. Royals fled to Brazil, which became only colony to be the capital of its “mother country”
    • The Peninsular War - 1808
      • REALLY made Spanish mad
        • Very loyal to king
        • Feared that Napoleon would weaken power of Church as had happened in France
        • Engaged in 5 years of guerrilla warfare , which cost Napoleon 300,000 troops
        • Encouraged Nationalism in other countries like Germany and Italy, who also started guerrilla warfare

    • The Surrender of Madrid May, 1809
    • Invasion of Russia - 1812

        • Napoleon thought that czar was selling grain to Britain behind his back
        • N. feared that czar wanted Poland from France
        • N. decided to invade Russia

        • All drafted from throughout Europe and not loyal to Napoleon
        • Scorched Earth Policy: EVERYTHING destroyed to keep from French: deaths and desertions
        • Sept. 14, 1812: Entered Moscow
          • Czar ordered it burned down
          • N. lingered for 5 weeks, waiting for peace offer - none came
    • Invasion of Russia, cont’d.
      • Oct./Nov. 1812 - Ordered retreat from Moscow
        • Snows began to fall
        • Barefoot, starving soldiers attacked by Russians
        • Temperature: on one day, -30º: Birds fell dead from sky
      • Mid-December 1812: Remaining 10,000 soldiers left Russia
    • Napoléon Invades Russia: 1812 614,000 French troops
    • Moscow on Fire!
    • Napoléon & His Grand Armée at the Gates of Moscow
    • Russian General Kutuzov The Russian army defeated the French at Borodino.
