Additional Information

The year 1809 witnessed a geopolitical shift in Europe. While France and Napolean's Grande Armee remained ascendant, for the first time Russia held the key to the balance of power and German nationalism became a force to contend with. In Crisis on the Danube James Arnold examines the military and diplomatic events of Napolen's pivotal Austrian Campaign that marked a turning point in European history. Using previously untapped primary sources gleaned from libraries and archives in Vienna, Paris, and London, Arnold highlights the trends which led to the destruction of Napoleon's empire: betrayal by key advisors; uncompromising diplomacy foiled by this betrayal and rising German nationalism; and Napoleon's growing self-delusion. In an engaging style the author conducts us through the swirl of diplomatic intrigue that preceded the Austraian Campaign. Revealed is the complex web of alliances constructed by the devious Talleyrand, France's Minister of Foreign Affairs, as well as the cunning political game he played with Austria's brilliant Count Metternich. We also see how Emperor Napoleon's inability to secure Czar Alexander's support and other failed political calculations allowed the duplicity of his underlings and machinations of his enemies to draw him into the conflict with Austria.
