Re: How the Pound beat Napoleon

See "Guineas and gunpowder British foreign aid in the wars with France, 1793-1815" John M. Sherwig, for details on what and when the Brits supplied aid to the various allies.

There is no question that English gold, credit, and arms were essential tools in the defeat of N. As I recall, the total number of muskets alone that were manufactured in England and shipped to allies was over 1 million. The financial aid, especially in the form of specie, was also essential. Austria in particular was always bankrupt and couldn't have paid any of their soldiers without English aid.
