A Man of Honour


Oxford University Press

The events of 1805 disclosed Emperor Alexander's vacillating and timorous attitude to foreign policy. They also portrayed Czartoryski as an impatient advocate of vigorous concerted action against Napoleon as an ideologue of ‘responsible liberty’ and of collective security and as a talented practitioner of propaganda. The short-lived plan to attack Prussia exposed the limits of his influence and injected a heavy dose of sourness into his relations with the Tsar, while the shattering defeat at Austerliz set back even further their ambitious aspirations.
