Re: Review-Wellington: Waterloo & Fortunes of Peac

The British have a habit of winning battles, such as Maida, and losing the campaign. They were forced to withdraw from Italy after the battle. So, they lost the campaign.

And they failed in Egypt in 1807 and were defeated by the Turks in the Dardenelles in 1807.

I was responding to your general statement that the British army's performance was dismal - what could Stuart do with only 5,000 men? - he beat Reynier and made a successful withdrawal. It was not realistic to expect him to clear Italy of the French invaders - I don't see how that was dismal.

Sorry, I did not that I was referring to the successful Egyptian campaign against the French in 1801. You have not commented on my other examples, which I think show that the small British army's performance was not dismal.
