Napoleon's troublesome Americans; Franco-American relations, 1804-1815.


Napoleon's troublesome Americans; Franco-American relations, 1804-1815.

Hill, Peter P.

Potomac Books, Inc.


289 pages




Hill (emeritus, history, George Washington U.) explains why Americans believed French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte had treated them so badly during the Anglo-French War of the day, and why conversely he believed that they deserved such treatment. His reason: Americans' relentless assault on his continental divide, often in collusion with the British they were shipping supplies to. Ironically of course, the U.S. declared war on Britain in 1812, but not on France--by a margin of two votes. Distributed in the U.S. by Books International.
