Well the Napoleon campaigns culminated in the horrendous trek out of Russia where General Winter ravaged the French troops...I hardly call that a victorious end to Napoleon's conquests

Weell, he won many battles before and after that -- and if he hadn't turned on Russia, he would have created a French Empire. There wouldn't have been a WWI -- say, that is speculation,but has anyone written a book based on that supposition?
