A Napolutionary (Revoleonic?) peace...

According to Otto von Digby's indispensable (not to say awe-inspiring) Big Book of Battles, there were no land clashes between the European Powers in our period between the capitulation of Alexandria in Sept. 1801 and the clash at Wertingen in Oct. 1805.

With the exception of the naval actions (listed in the same author's equally useful "Napoleon's Regiments", does anybody know of any skirmishes, clashes, conflicts, actions, 'contretemps', 'affaires' or 'recent unpleasantnesses' during this four year period. Not trying to gainsay any of Digby's painstaking work - it just struck me for the first time that this is a very long interregnum without musketry, given that so many histories refer to "twenty-three years of unbroken strife."

Sunday musing....but an interesting topic?

Cordially
