May 18th, 1803, and a check book. That’s all one needs to know to figure out who started the Wars that would bleed Europe for a decade after. They are without doubt the worst warmongers of All Time

There were so many times that the Russian Campaign could’ve been a great success. If The Imperial Guard was committed at Borodino, then the entirety of The Russian Army would’ve been obliterated, and the need to keep advancing on Moscow would not have been necessary.

The Duke Of Wellington is so over rated as a battlefield commander it makes me want to vomit. He Beat Joseph Bonaparte, and Marshals Jourdan, Marmont, and Massena, not exactly stiff competition. If he would’ve faced Suchet, Davout or Lannes in Spain, he would’ve been a laughing stock. Waterloo is One of the most bullshit campaigns of all time. Wellington wrapping himself in a flag of glory which was won for him by the Prussians. You have the weather, the time, the numbers, and favorable terrain all on your side, then proceed to win a battle my grandmother could’ve commanded and won, and now your a great commander? British arrogance and pompous on full display. I hate Britain, and the self centered spoon fed aristocrats that have ruled that miserable island for centuries. We should’ve let the Wehrmacht remove them from the face of the Earth before we defeated Germany. Two birds, one stone.

But that’s what we should expect from those who are descendants of people that were wholly illiterate, incompetent savages while Augustus, Trajan and Hadrian Flourished in Rome. Damn Barbarians

Sorry for the rant, I’m feeling feisty today for some reason

The British tended to beat superior French Ships and numbers in battle due to the fact Robespierre believed it would be a good idea to guillotine more than two thirds of the competent naval officers for not being Republican enough.

Fortunately, the Reign of Terror ended when Robespierre was guillotined himself thus ending that bloody chapter in French History.
