Amiens, Peace of,
The French revolution instigated a 25-year storm that swept
up all Europe and whose winds reached to the far corners of the earth.
In the middle of the hurricane gusts and squalls came a lull. However
like the eye of a hurricane, it was only a temporary respite before
the winds renewed with a ferocity even greater than before.
After five years of war between the French Republic and the
First Coalition, in late autumn of 1797, there would finally be peace
on the European continent. On October 17, 1797, representatives of France
and Austria concluded a peace settlement which brought the Italian Campaign
to a final close.

Letters on British
Politics Captured by the French in January 1804
Transcribed, edited and annotated by Dominque Contant and Tom Holmberg
In response to the British publication of letters from the French
in Egypt intercepted by the Royal Navy the French published a selection
of letters captured aboard the East Indiaman Admiral Aplin.
The publication of these letters was part of the propaganda war carried
on by the two opposing forces in the Napoleonic wars. In both cases
the editors of the documents gave them the worse possible interpretations,
which the editors of the present volume complain of in their introduction.
This is reprint of 101 of those letters.
