abstract
"The story of the British government's determination to destroy Napoleon Bonaparte by any means possible. Between two assassination attempts--in 1800 and 1804--on Napoleon Bonaparte, the British government launched a propaganda campaign of unprecedented scope and intensity to persuade George III's reluctant subjects to fight the Napoleonic War, a war to the death against one man: the Corsican usurper and tyrant."--
