Re: Review-Wellington: Waterloo & Fortunes of Peac

“When the British went to war with France in 1793 they did not severe their first clear victory in a significant land battle until 1801, and that was in Egypt against an isolated and demoralized opponent. The next did not come until 1806, in southern Italy, in a minor battle which was followed by a British evacuation. The big interventions in Flanders in 1793-95 and 1799 ended ignominiously… Ten years later an expedition to Holland… became a byword for futility and for massive losses suffered through disease. Even in the Peninsular war, Wellington’s early victories were followed by reversals and retreats, and only from May 1813 did a self-sustaining sequence of advances unfold.” Collins, Bruce. War and Empire: The Expansion of Britain, 1790-1830. Longman, 2010. P. 17.
