Abstract

Napoleon’s accomplishments with his army are well known and respected. On the other hand, his navy was not so lucky. Many failings brought down this otherwise capable and dangerous force. This presentation explores those failings, ranging from political to military problems. Two major battles are also analyzed and given a narrative, so as to give context to the examination and provide a more interesting story.
