About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1910, this book explores the hypothesis that Napoleon's decrees were intended as an attack on British credit immediately before the outbreak of the final Napoleonic War. Cunningham examines French pamphlets and Napoleon's correspondence to reveal the French opinion on the state of Britain's credit and how unstable finances could be used to undermine an enemy before an actual conflict arose. This book will be of value to economic historians and anyone with an interest in Napoleonic propaganda.
