Hi Futurist,

In fact that link shows that a long standing French-Turkish alliance ended just as Napoleon was coming to power and just as he was invading Egypt.

Cheers,

Sid.

Yes, but it also subsequently shows that this alliance was briefly reactivated afterwards.

Yep, that was a mistake on Napoleon's part! You can even call it Napoleon Dynamite! ;)
