Excerpt from Life of Napoleon, Vol. 3 of 4
The policy of Austria differs, therefore, in no way from that of other states. If the monarchy of Francis II. Has been able to resist violent shocks, it is because it has a war like people, and a good system of recruiting its forces ... be cause its geographical position is singularly favorable for defense, and lastly, because, in great danger, it is rescued from shipwreck by Russia or England.
The position of Austria towards us was a false one this was made so, first, by the revolution, which produced the first coalition second, by the invasion of Switzerland, which produced the second coalition; and third, by the annexa tions of Italy to France, which caused the third coalition.
