I think you are misinterpreting me (to put it mildly): I am not suggesting Napoleon killed for pleasure or incited anyone else to do so, obviously he always expected some practical result from killing. All I am saying is that the concept of military glory was being used to incite and justify war where there was no better motivation. Lauriston presumably also expected promotion and a financial bonus to back up the glory.
You have a more important thread to work on with the Waterloo stuff. I think this one is played out anyway.
