Quest for Empire 2.2

Jun 15, 2021

      Having survived an effort by the Paris government to replace him in army commander, Napoleon resumes his successful campaign in northern Italy, defeating a series of Austrian armies and negotiating a peace settlement highly advantageous to French interests. In the course of his ensuing conquest of Egypt, however, various setbacks force him to abandon the campaign and return to France to help defend the country against a new coalition of monarchist enemies. Text and narration by Dave Inglehart.
