The Napoleonic Wars (PARTS 1-6)

The Napoleonic Wars (1803 - 1815) brought upheaval and destruction to Europe on an unprecedented scale. This is the story of the first half of those wars, when Napoleon Bonaparte, self-crowned Emperor of the French, ruled supreme on the battlefield and international stage - the greatest man of his age. But in the midst of victory, the seeds of his eventual downfall were sown.

This video is a compilation of the first six episodes of Epic History TV's Napoleonic Wars series.

Napoleon in Russia ALL PARTS

????Check out the new historical fiction novel 'Terribilita' by Ben Wyckoff Shore:

In 1812 Napoleon invaded Russia with the largest army Europe had ever seen, composed of troops from France as well as Poland, Germany, Italy and several other allied states. The campaign that followed saw the Russians use scorched earth tactics to deny the enemy supplies, while Napoleon advanced further and further into Russia, searching in vain for the decisive blow that would force Emperor Alexander to negotiate peace.

Even after winning a costly victory at Borodino and occupying Moscow, Napoleon's invitation to negotiate received no response. Napoleon found himself 500 miles from friendly territory, outnumbered, poorly supplied, and with winter approaching. What followed was one of the most harrowing and disastrous events in military history - the Retreat from Moscow - in which Russian attacks, freezing weather and starvation virtually wiped out the once-proud Grande Armée.

Special thanks to Alexander Averyanov for kind permission to use his paintings 'Battle of Smolensk', 'Artilleryman's Exploits', 'Prince Pyotr Bagration at Borodino: The Last Counterattack', 'Horse Guards at the Battle of Borodino', 'The Fighting for Shevardino Redoubt', 'The Fighting for Bagration Flèches'. 'Maloyaroslavets', 'At Gorodnya 25 October 1812' and 'Council of War at Gorodnya'.

Following his defeat in the giant Battle of Leipzig (Oct 1813), Napoleon's final defeat seemed only a matter of time. But when Coalition armies crossed the Rhine and invaded France, Napoleon - outnumbered 4 to 1 -began one of the most daring and brilliant campaigns in military history. However Napoleon's hope that his victories would cause a fatal split in the Coalition did not materialise, and eventually, Schwarzenberg and Blücher's dash for Paris would seal the fate of the Napoleonic Empire.

Napoleon's Marshals Part 6

In 1804 Napoleon created 18 'Marshals of the Empire', to serve as the senior officers of the Grande Armée. He created a further 8 before his abdication. A few were aristocrats, but others were the sons of shopkeepers or tailors. The most favoured became princes and kings. Among their ranks were legendary figures such as Marshals Lannes, Ney, Soult, Davout and Massena, but also much less well know figures like Pérignon, Brune and Moncey. Our series will explore the lives of all 26 Marshals, and rank them according to our own judgement of their achievements as Marshals.

???? Use this link to check out Curiosity Stream's documentaries and use code 'EpicHistoryTV' to get 30 days free!

In 1813, following his disastrous invasion of Russia, Napoleon faced a desperate battle to save his empire. His enemies were gaining in strength, as Prussia and Sweden joined the Sixth Coalition against him, while Russian armies advanced across Poland and into Germany. The French Emperor worked miracles to raise a new Grande Armée of young conscripts, leading them to victory at Lützen and Bautzen. But Napoleon knew everything might ultimately depend on Austria - which side would his father-in-law, Austrian Emperor Francis I, chose to support? The matter would be settled after a fateful and ill-tempered meeting in Dresden between Napoleon and Austrian foreign minister von Metternich...

Battle of Jena-Auerstedt 1806: Napoleon Smashes Prussia

Fresh from his great victory at Austerlitz, Napoleon's next campaign saw him take on Prussia in the autumn of 1806. Prussia's army had been feared throughout Europe since the days of Frederick the Great, but in just 5 weeks of 'Napoleonic Blitzkrieg', the French Emperor showed that those days were long gone.

Napoleon - The Deadly Emperor of Europe

Was Napoleon the greatest conqueror ever? What do we know about him?
He was the man who established the First French Empire. To the French people he was a hero. To the French royalty he was their demise. Napoleon Bonaparte was a scourge to European leaders, but the countries he conquered joined a vast empire spanning from Spain into Russia.
Along with his control over Europe, Napoleon Bonaparte conquered territories in the West Indies, Americas, and Northern Africa. Napoleon may have been the greatest conqueror history has ever seen.
Napoleon Bonaparte was born on August 15, 1769 on Corsica, an island in the Mediterranean Sea. Just before his birth the island of Corsica was conquered by French forces, making baby Napoleon and his family subjects of King Louis XV.
