Overview

Fitchett's four-volume history is a stirring and frankly biased account of England's role as protector and defender of civilization against what the author terms "the wild-menace of Revolutionary France and the world-threatening despotism of Napoleon."  In Volume One (1900), the focus is on the Low Countries and Egypt.  Fitchett discusses the period of “England and the Revolution,” noting Pitt’s relationship with France as well as some early battles; the next period, “The Hour of England’s Peril,” showcases a good deal of mutiny within England. Lastly, “Bonaparte in the East” paints a portrait of Napoleon in his many pursuits.

About the Author

William Henry Fitchett (1841-1928) was an Australian journalist, historian, novelist, minister, and editor.  He wrote three novels, and a number of successful popular histories—including Deeds that Won the Empire (1896)—but he viewed his work as the founding president of the Methodist Ladies' College of Melbourne to be his crowning achievement.
