In Response To: Re: Napoleon - Overrated? ()

I find it very difficult to accept that Napoleon was to blame for the wars after he became head of state as he was not the aggressor in 1805, 1806, 1807, or 1809. And then there is the fact that Napoleon was not responsible for the actions of the French revolutionary governments as he was not head of state before November 1799.

It seems to me that, unfortunately, the old, and very tired, 'Corsican Ogre' school of 'thought' is still alive and well and some authors are still writing based on the British and allied propaganda of the time.
