Re: Egypt and Russia
In Response To: Re: Egypt and Russia ()

Aside from the use of some colorful pejorative language, the type of language used far more often in posts (and books) regarding Napoleon's opponents (who are frequently called "cowards" and routinely "flee" while the French simply "retire"), I didn't notice anything that contradicted the conclusions from the last discussion in Digby's post. Whether or not he *should* have retained his position is debatable, therefore questionable (then and now) and therefore perfectly in line with Digby's concluding remark. He left for the opportunities offered in France, not for the benefit of his army in Egypt, though the exact nature of the "trough" he was putting his snout in is subject to some interpretation - "saving France" and gaining the opportunity to win more glory for himself would go hand in hand and really are not separable. Although I think maybe we should start calling Digby the "anti-Bowden"!
