The French Revolution, Vol. 4 of 4 free pdf Excerpt from The French Revolution, Vol. 4 of 4: A Political History 1789-1804 To avoid too frequent discursion in the following notes it may be briefly stated that Napoleon's military exploits, from 1796 to 1799, were as follows: In March he marries Josephine and sets out for Italy. Joining the French troops near Savona, he fights his way to Milan- incidentally forcing Sardinia to cede Nice, Savoy, and Tenda. He then beats the Austrians back to the Tyrol, and occupies Verona. Mantua is still Austrian, and Bonaparte leaves a siege train in front of the city while consolidating his conquests. He fails on this occasion to get through the Tyrol, but finally reduces Mantua. Then, meeting Hoche and Moreau after traversing the Tyrol, he makes towards Vienna. Austria sues for peace- ceding, after much delay, Belgium and the Ionians, and recognising Bonaparte's creation - the Cisalpine Republic - to which she cedes Lombardy. Bonaparte returns to Paris in December, having left behind him a Republican North Italy. He is feted and honoured by Paris- but the Directory fears him, and despatches him in May to Egypt, where he beats the Mamelukes and occupies Cairo. The French fleet being destroyed by Nelson, Bonaparte abandons the idea of an Eastern empire, and determines to return through Syria, hoping to overthrow the Turks. He is foiled at the long siege of Acre, and returns to Egypt. There, after defeating the Turks at Aboukir, he hears of events in Paris, and, hastily deserting his army, which he leaves to Kleber, he lands in France in October. In his absence Italy is lost- perhaps its loss during his absence increases his prestige. He returns with an extraordinary reputation as a totally independent conqueror, an administrator, and a maker of States. Largely as a result of his campaigns, France was for a time at the head of a number of surrounding Republics, all constituted on the same model.
