A Man of Honour

This chapter explains the events that took place after the defeat in Austerliz. The rout at Austerliz was brought about by too hasty a desire to give battle and by the distraction and disorganization created by Alexander's presence and interference. Despite Alexander's caution and respect for existing state structures, Napoleon's victories over Prussia's armies confirmed the Turks in their belief that Napoleonic France offered more than a counterbalance to Russian power in the south-east of Europe.
