The Last Great European
History repeats itself-but with
variations. A hundred years ago
France alone, under the leadership
of Napoleon, faced Germany, Aus
tria, Italy, Russia and Great
At thirty-six, Napoleon had con
quered every nation of Europe, and
in the battle of Austerlitz io 1805,
practically brought the continent
under the subjection of the French
Army. Then Austria, Germany and
Russia formed the great coalition
against France, only to be beaten in
battle after battle until they were
compelled to sue for peace. Eng
land, thanks to her inpregnable na
vy was the only nation not forced
to acqnowledge Napoleon's rule.
It was the snow covered steppes
of Russia rather than the military
science of Europe that finally turn
ed the tide against him.
The present European crisis gives
a particular opportuneness to the
offer of Napoleon's Memoirs, an
nouncement of which is made in
another column of this paper. Few
books throw a more illuminating
and interesting light on the under
lying causes of those years ot con
flict tb.3n the fascinating story of
the man whose meteoric career left
Europe sown with the seeds of dis
"Within a hundred years," said
Napoleon, "Europe will be either
Cossack or Republican." The pres
ent conflict will go far towards de
termining the truth of that prophe
cy, and day by.day it will furnish
an absorbing illustration of the ad
vance which has been made in the
art of warfare since the days, only
a century ago, when France alone
had Europe at her feet.
Napoleon'* Memoirs, written by
his priv :.ecretary, Baron De
Menr /ill give you a clearer in
sigh .o that tremendous upheaval
of .ope which the present crisis
ais destined to reproduce.
Collier's, too, will do its part in
picturing history in the making by
presenting, each week, last-minute
news, photographs and drawings of
battles on land and sea, together
with interesting stories and articles
from special representatives in the
field. Then there'll be a series of
articles dealing with the effect of
the war on the nations involved and
on American business. All this in
