In Response To: Re: Historical Inquiry ()

From The Consequences of Honor by Mark Lucas, 464:

'As far as the rupture of Amiens in concerned, Napoleon shares responsibility with the British. I am inclined to think the latter are more culpable, simply because they brought issues to a head that were actually quite weak grounds for war and refused to consider Napoleon's last-minute compromises. They certainly had grounds to mistrust him and fear his swelling power-base, but he was justified in holding the same sentiments about them in return. I also find it difficult to believe that Napoleon wanted war, mainly because I do not see any specific political goal that would have been satisfied by one. It is quite possible, given Napoleon's colonial ambitions, tensions between Britain and France would have eventually been tested, but this would have not necessarily been Napoleon's fault any more than Britain's. Once the war started, Napoleon can certainly be blamed for escalating it by occupying northern Germany and expecting Europe to close its ports to British trade, but the reactionary hostility of the major European powers is not to be discounted in aggravating this tension. The extension of the French Empire on the continent at their expense was not part of any premeditated plan to conquer Europe, but the piece-meal fruits of a chain of victories and a predisposition in Napoleon's character to punish harshly those who crossed him.'
