"prussian army" Discussed on The Napoleonic Quarterly

"And the russians are working on with respect to what's going to become the third partition of poland and is is going to be very concerning for Frederick wound the second in his court because it looks like even though the prussian army has played such an important role in in crushing to polish uprising. Alongside the russians. This deal is going to kind of be an entente between austria and russia Which could lead to kind of you know isolating Prussia in fares in central and eastern europe and kind of leaving them out of this final partition. So how does that then lead to the decision to drop out of the with fronts right so they are looking for an opportunity to bring this commitment. You know this war that they've committed to against france to an end so that they can you know kind of turn their direction east and get back in in in affairs going on in poland So the war. There's kind of within the prussian court between Some factions of the court who want to maintain a commitment to the war against france because of brushing prestige and kind of still being part of this crusade but they are losing out increasingly to the dominant faction at court. Which is going to influence. Frederick william which says look we're committing too much to this and we need to. We need to not be engaged in this war anymore because of Affairs that matter more to bus in eastern europe because precious priority throughout a always being to the east rather than to the west and so essentially. This is just a continuation of that. But it's it leads them to conclude that actually they've just go to stop fighting fronts now right and this is this has been a feature of kind of prussian policy really for the last year And it's generated a lot of tension already between them and their allies or partners within the first coalition so this is kind of a culmination of pressure removing itself from the war While trying to save as much as possible but also trying to pursue its own its own understanding of its own self interests. The negotiations that ended up with the basil treaty. They actually started back in the late fall of seventeen ninety four. They started rather haphazardly. Because neither side really knew exactly what kind of terms it was pushing for and so it takes a while for that to kind of gain clarity. And then once the information comes in about what. The austrians and the russians are working on in poland. That's when the prussians really committed to making peace and cutting their losses against france and coming up with a deal that they can live with. And what were the terms. Who was the i was going to say with us. It loses to party so clearly fraud to the witness. But i suppose the question is how bad was it for prussia. Well actually for prussia Both sides both. The french and the prussians could kind of seed themselves as winners in a sense. I mean it's not it's not definitive in in some ways Because some of the terms have to be put off until a subsequent peace deal because it impacts the holy roman empire but basically the deal that comes out. In april april fifth seventeen ninety five france agrees that it will not occupy any german territory and he prussian territory on the right bank of the rhine so east of the rhine but that it will while the war is going on and this is kind of in the indie main treaty of basel. It will hold onto territory on the left bank of the rhine including the little territories. That prussia has along the left bank of the rhine until the conclusion of a general peace with the empire but there was a secret clause within the treaty of basel. Which is really the most important which basically gets a prussia to commit to accepting francis permanent retention of all of the left bank territories on the rhine provided that that was kind of settled at a future peace conference and prussia would be adequately compensated on the right bank of the rhine within those german states and also that the german princes who were going to lose their territory in the rhineland would be compensated in some form as well at some peace conference that would come at the end of the war well it wouldn't be a napoleonic french revolutionary era treaty without a secret article attached to it. So that's that's that's quite right and let's ask but i was going to ask about saxony but let me ask you about all of the various other statelets and and many kingdoms in early roman empire. Because it's not just pressure of course and you've covered off a few there. But how are they feeling. Just says the treaty. Basil is really important for the holy roman empire Another part of the kind of agreement at basel which is finalized in may involve this line of north german neutrality which basically sets up a line of neutrality running along the right bank of the rhine and then along the north bank of the mine river and that's going to be guaranteed by the prussian army And so it's giving prussia more and more powerful position in north germany kind of representing itself as the protector of north germany within the holy roman empire obviously rather than the austrians so you start to have those north german states including like hess which see this as a as a as a kind of opportunity to start to pull themselves out of the war as well and then you've got other german states like the southern german states that are also seeing what's happening and they're not necessarily ready to get out yet in seventeen ninety five but their commitment to the war is really starting to decline and australia ability to bind them to the coalition is really starting to be shaken by. You know the fact that the pressures pulling out australia's kind of not doing well militarily and is becoming you know diplomatically isolated. Now's the on the continent as the coalition starting to kind of fracture so that's germany But also in this quarter. We've got the piece of holland and the treaty of the hague being signed another another country dropping out right and that that The peace of holland in the treaty of the hague. This is all kind of happening. Simultaneous with the negotiations at basel. And it's a consequence. Obviously if the french conquest of the netherlands at the end of the seventeen ninety four campaign and and in january seventeen ninety five when you have the emergence of this new batavia ian Batavia in republic so Remember the the. Netherlands fell both as a result of a french invasion but also an internal revolution led by these revolutionary clubs in the major cities of the netherlands. And so that group day become kind of the founding fathers of this new batavia in republic. Many of them had their origins back in the patriot. Movement of the of the seventeen eighty s against against the dutch stockholder. So the question here is what is this new state going to going to be like. And how is it going to kind of relate with the french republic And so you know. Is it going to be treated an independent. Purely independent nation and like an ally of the french republic or is it going to be treated by the french as basically conquered land and you know annexed and so the leaders of the batavia republic. They declared themselves independent and they seek out a french Which will ultimately kind of coal us around the treaty of the hague But the treaty of the hague actually quite harsh toward the dutch and is actually more of a A sign of kind of how the french policies becoming more imperialistic. Because i mean they are. They're forced into a alliance with france where they're forced to declare war against england. They are occupied by the french. There's a twenty five thousand men army That occupies the netherlands and the dutch have to pay for the occupation. They have to accept a lot of the french financial policies. The french currency. So it's quite a way to treat a new ally and this is really where you start to see the emergence of this client. Stay system That you know you're going to see all across other parts of europe under napoleon zipping about the consonant. Now but now down to spain and and the the franco-spanish peace treaty is in the works in this quarter at least yeah so the basically the war The campaigning in the pure knees has essentially stopped after the french successes late. In seventeen ninety four they do kind of resume an offensive against spain in the spring of seventeen ninety five to kind of give them some final urging to come along and make peace. But if you think about it you know. The the french and the spanish have been historical. Allies in the eighteenth century was really an unnatural alliance between spain and britain and initially spain had not wanted to be a part of the war but obviously whenever The french execute the borbon king of france that angers the borbon the board bonds in spain. But as the word kinda played out a lot of tensions developed between the spanish and their partners in the coalition and the spanish were were not happy at all about seeing how the british were making gains in the mediterranean and the caribbean so again like with russia and like with a lot of these other states to spanish are viewing the war now less in kind of fierce ideological terms and especially this is true after the terror and they're starting to think about it more in terms of power politics. What's in their best interest and so overrule to sum up. This really is the three months in which the first coalition is clear has has collapsed basically. There's a strong sense of france being much more secure now at the end of this quarter to them at the start i say so i would say it's it's in some ways ironic because militarily the french military forces the french armies are in pretty bad shape actually after their successes in seventeen ninety four but in achieving those victories and carrying delta's offensives they really Quite exhausted themselves so they're having to take a moment of reprieve and kind of to recover but through these diplomatic efforts that the thermidor rain regime leading to directory is able to make yeah. They're putting themselves in a much better position where they're able to make deals with these states and in coming to terms with france All of these states and it's really important with respect to like prussia or.

"He was fluent in French German. But and translate he even he brought a French shift Develey, the guy quit after forty eight houses did not know this not for me. But. What really intrigued me about von Steuben was he also arrived at Valley Forge with a resume. That was doctored up than the mayo clinic. Now, I'll step back to explain that on Steuben had risen to the rank of captain in Frederick, the greats Prussian army now, of course, Frederick the great at the time was the most renowned military commander in the western world and his Prussian army, although small was the most feared they used to say that Frederick the great at an army with the country as opposed to a country with an army on Steuben had learned under Frederick, the great something that no other western officer had not in France, not Poland Britain, Italy, certainly not the continental army United States, and that was Frederick the great made his officers live eat and breathe with the enlisted get down in the muck and mire with them. All the other armies thought the officers that were. This was below offer station we leave that to the sergeants corporals NCO on stupid knew how to drill army. So when he kinda shows up in France in the counter version once again, Amanda Frenchman in the middle of a lot of this introduces them to Franklin, and Silas Deane now, of course, their initial reaction is a crush now. Now, no, we're already getting screaming letters from Washington. Not to send any more of these mercenaries he soldiers fortune over to the United States. But it only took a few interviews with on Stoobant ale. Chatted in French for them to realize Franklin, especially this is just the man that washing the needs to turn his disparate conglomeration of militias into a well oiled fighting machine. He knows what he's doing knows how to train knows how to drill, but he dean of Jan got together. And he's said, what are we gonna do? Those only captain Washington's rejecting the generals were sunny over. So suddenly. On students captain's bars recklessly disappeared from shoulder and replaced by general stars. And he became inspector general of Frederick degrades, crush Rb. Which of course, he never was. And he became a principal aide to camp to Frederick the great for over decade, of course, which he never did. But this is the way that they figure they can get him into the states later on when it gets exposed will figure it out. But for now, let's get him over and sure enough he shows up within his first week at valley. Forge the enlisted men junior officers, and even the American generals who are very suspicious of foreigners. He's ingratiated himself to every one of them is first week. He's writing memos to Washington, you cannot have your latrines run willy nilly through the bread baking of territory, you gotta put him on the other side of the hell you let's grade the roads in front of the huts through two thousand hunts. They built a Valley Forge let's grade those roads and give them Reggie. Mental names to give the soldiers sense of professionalism within days Washington had told all his other officers. Do not train your men the training is gonna come from this Prussian Washington gave on stupid his personal guard fifty men chosen other fifty men from the states that were Representative alley Ford and said to student trainings one hundred men and then spread them out throughout the army as your sub traitors. So everyday von Steuben would take these one hundred men out on the debris onto the prayed ground valley. Forge and the other soldiers didn't have a lot to do. So there's thousands of lined up in a square and square watching stupid and action. And sure enough on Steuben would get down on his rather large gut in a muck in the mire teach them how to read to rain or pick up heat. He doffed his coat and throw away is riding crop pick up a musket CHOGM the proper way to put to put a bayonet in. Somebody's gut and then twisted the men took to this like never before. And this is the other one of the many reasons why I love on stupid. He was of prickly for detail use brushing expect and when someone made a mistake or did something wrong, or somehow incurred von Steuben Zeier as I said before he had no English French German will Washington had assigned Lafayette and Lawrence as his translators..

After all like, you Robbins knows that so much of human sin and obsession is intimately tied to food. What we consume how we consume it. And how that makes us feel and so Mike Robbins has plunged gigantic ice cream scoop. Deep into history to up some stories of food and sin and compulsion. And he's complicated relationship with food as well. Mike is new book has a beautiful covering it's called seven deadly sins and one very naughty 'Fred. Welcome market, Richard level headed you get started with this story. I've always had obviously massive love of food. And I'm always been a bit of a history node one of those two worlds collide a couple guys reading a biography of the Greg. French chef is coffee. This coffee. It was like pretty much what will regard as one of the first celebrity shifts not just because he was famous, but he knew how to court fame. He would have five as people. He's table that is restaurants also to he's invented what we would regard the modern way of serving as entree or causes courses alluvia as opposed to a banquet. So as written this book about him. And there's a story about the siege of Paris nineteen seventy and it's really engage me and from there I thought of behind and reading books on food history. I know the battles are important. The emperor's are important and the dates we need to know. But sometimes it's a little mini shy of of human culture that says so much about an era. Well, the Prussian army my will invade and occupy Paris, but went to Frenchman from having a good meal if he can get hold on. We'll it. Well, that was the story. What happened wasn't? I might get to Grissom on these people Paris the dividing seventy where reduced to utter starvation. In fact. In the middle of this bunch of French officers had booked voice on restaurant, and we're insisting on a Christmas. Thanks to. At the same time. There was no no let them pass at the same time. Rather unfortunate very, unfortunately, they couldn't find food for the animals of the twelve zoo. Yes, you see this going richest birds one stone. I think to was the third course. Sweat. You actually have is this bizarre collision of zoo animals cooked in. A high Kloss European method and to me that was those extra store ever that the the thing about what what are some food is to boo what happened is during wartime with food and also to just Hal much of our own pretensions are wrapped up in food in the century their actual actually pamphlets that told you how to hide you'll lobster? She'll say neighbors sue them. Otherwise neighbors would know that you're so poor. You were reduced to Itting, see cockroaches. So right. That's begging the day when lobster was seen as a poor, man.

Mark black-market caveat salesman that came to his hotel room every afternoon served in the finest beluga, caviar nothing at all he became addicted to it and headed on toast, everyday such the compensations for correspondent reporting on some bloodiest hideous revolution. I had caveat several times in my life, and I can honestly say on someone else's expense account. With spending your own money on that kind of food is the food of the world can agree and disagree to carry hours. Just it's just cheer heaven. But the caveat we have is is expensive. So the best expensive caviar in the world. What is the most expensive caviar in the world? It's offer ran and it's a sturgeon, but it has to be an L Bino sturgeon. So silly. So that's just that's just rarity for its own psych rather than flavor shoulder because the eggs are then winding and also to the sturgeon has to live to be over one hundred years old.

"That's obviously not true their mandate is to push as radical policies. They possibly can to undermine any sort of gains that Trump has made and then to aim for twenty twenty which is really what this whole thing is about is getting rid of Trump in the long run. But the pitch that they are making to the public and the one that apparently is having some suburban women, and this is where, you know, Trump appealing to his base plays into the democrat plan is Trump doing the I'm trying to lick main. You guys are occasi- that that routine. It doesn't help with suburban women, which means that Republicans were most likely to get ousted this year are Republicans in purple district. Here's Barack Obama making the final appeal to those people, and you can also see why Barack Obama trolled the right? So trump. Rose left. Rock Obama troll. The right. That's how he got Trump in the first place. Here's here's Barack Obama. But most importantly, the curator countries on the belt who we are is on the ballot. What kind of? What kind of politics? We expect is on the ballot. All we conduct ourselves in public. Life is on the ballot. How we treat other people on the ballot. Nope. None of those things are on the ballot. Not one of those things are on the ballot Obama sitting there and telling me about how class and decency are on the ballot in this from a guy who who unleashed his vice presidential candidate to say the Mitt Romney was going to put black people back in chains. Yeah. I know the answer is no I don't buy that. You don't buy. Nobody buys it. Which is how you got Trump in the first place, but that also does play into Obama's new pitch. Which is I know the forgotten all about me. I know you think I'm relevant now, but weren't things so nice and friendly back, then they weren't nice and friendly back then but a lot of people have really short memories. I mean, this is the key to American politics. Everybody has a short memory rent Kavanagh's confirmation hearings for like a month ago in nobody even remembers when Barack Obama was president that was at least three lifetimes ago and that lifetime. I was Colonel in the Prussian army. I mean, the Barack Obama they can count on the fact that nobody remembers that he was a deeply divisive and polarizing figure until he can say stuff like this. And then pointed Trump who is deeply divisive and polarizing figure and say we will unify the country when he says stuff like the character of the country is on the ballot who we are is on the ballot. The implication is this is one of my favorite thing. When folks on election day, everybody should vote. You know, it's your civic duty gunboat, I want everybody look at the beauty of American democracy. Everybody going and boating. It's just great. I want you to go vote. Wait voted for the other guy. You are the worst person. I have ever heard of. I can't believe you voted why in the world would you vote when people say everyone should vote what they mean is everyone should vote agrees with me and Barack Obama's one of these. I love that the character of the countries on the ballot who we are as on the ballot meeting if you vote for Republicans that you're a bad person. What kind of politics we expect is on the ballot..
