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?

(Never forget 9/11)
I believe WWI was spawned by the frogs loss of the Alsass Loraine in the Franco-Prussan war of 1870 and the French defeat and their subsequent baiting of the Germans to recover the lost pride of a generation ago...
