As the French people continued to prepare the Grand armée for war, Napoleon was contacted by a British delegation in southern France during his final preperations for the invasion of Spain..
they had come to discuss Napoleons plans to invade Spain... questioning how invading the Republic of Spain would be beneficial to the goal of stopping Germany from warmongering.
Napoleon explained to the British delegates that Spain was Vital for one reason only.. His brother needed a crown, and Napoleon did not want to hear his brother nagging him during military campaigns...
The delegation questioned this however.. and threatened if a better excuse wasnt made up for the papers the British Empire would be inclined to intervene in Partisan warfare across all of Spain
Napoleon not wanting to repeat his old war... decided a new excuse was to be made.. and told the delegation to be back after the war where he could show them exactly what the war was about
the delegation however would hear non of it, and demanded to be given a reason for this invasion.
soo Napoleon frustrated with the uncooperative British, decided to tell them his true fears of Spain..
he believed Spain to be holding something.. so gruesome.. and so terrible, that they must be stopped before they had a chance to do any damage upon the world...
Napoleon being his Charasmatic self convinced to Delegation, who went home to London to report the intentions of young-old Napoleon.
as of such, Napoleon could now invade Spain without risking a draining Partisan war in Spain.. so the final preperations was made, however Spanish agents in France had gotten word of Napoleons intentions...
as a response Napoleon's Grand Armée began crossing the border as soon as French agents reported that the Spanish agents had reported that France planned an invasion of the Republic of Spain.
Due to Spain only just having finished their Civil war no resistance was present along the French-Spanish border
However it did not take long before His Most Catholic armies tried to stop the Grand Armée in its tracks.
Though Napoleon was hardly worried, he was in overall command of the invasion after all,
A messenger arrived at Napoleons Headquarters in Southern France saying he had news from the Foreign minister..
it would appear the Germans had taken this chance of French aggression to invade neighbouring Countries...
it would appear that the German forces had begun crossing into the Remainder of Czechoslovakia, Czechoslovakia put up a brave resistance..
the messenger however reported a strange report the foreign minister had sent him off with, and did'nt know whether it was a joke to sent said message..
However, Napoleon insisted that the message must be delivered.. the messenger did as his Emperor commanded and gave him the report, it would appear that the report told about Denmark surrendering to the Germans, Napoleon looked to the messenger with a questionable look, and asked "have we even had a report about Germany invading Denmark?" the messenger shook his head, explaining this is why he thought it a jest..
meanwhile in Denmark (god.. this joke hurts so much..)
Napoleon did not entirely dismiss the possibility of the Germans invading Denmark, however, he would have to investigate the matter after the Spanish campaign.. the messenger was sent back to Paris.
Back in Spain..
on the 5th of May the Swing from the Medditerranian coast towards Madrid begun
no real resistance was faced by the French Chassuers and by the 21st of May they began moving in around Madrid.
Napoleon now pushed for the National Guard conscripts to push south faster.
Meanwhile back at Napoleons Headquarters
the Young messenger arrived once again, this time with news that the Czechoslovakian goverment had surrenderd to the German invaders
Finally in early June Madrid had been encircled by the Grand Armée, and the assult of Madrid began
However, while Madrid was about to fall to the Grand Armée Napoleon ordered his men to continue striking south...
Napoleon knew the days of just taking the capital meant win was over.. which was evident by continued Spanish resistance in the south
fighting with nail and teeth to stop the Grand armée from advancing, obviously without luck.
on the 13th of June the Garrison forces fighting in Madrid surrendered to the Grand Armée
After the fall of Madrid, Napoleon even though he knew it wasnt over was relieved.. he still had war in his bones.. however, the panish had moved their Capital to Sevilla, hoping to fend of the French Grand Armée north of Gibraltar, which they had taken from the British.
on the 27th the Chassuers began moving in to surround Sevilla, and liberate Gibraltar.
Meanwhile in Napoleons Headquarters
as Napoleon had grown confident beyond doubt about victory, he began preperations for his trip back to Paris
however, during his Preperations, yet again the Messenger arrived at his Headquarters.. Napoleon greeted the familiare face as it had become, the messenger told Napoleon that he was sent to inform Napoleon that the Turkish demand territory of the French Mandate of Syria, the notion made Napoleon laugh, telling the boy that he wanted him to write down what he told him and give it to the Foreign minister to give to the turkish foreign minister.
The messenger nodded and was handed a pen and a piece of paper..
"I Emperor Napoleon I and IV of France, have always wanted to see the Pyramids again, and should i so design to go to see the Pyramids in Egypt, then i would probably be inclined to pay ankara and Istanbull a visit on the way... unless ofcourse such demands were pulled back...
Napoleon I and IV of France."
the messenger finished writing the letter and was sent back to Paris.
by the 26th of July the Grand Armée encircled Sevilla and begun Assulting the city
on the 29th July.. the commander of the Spanish forces, surrendered to one of Napoleons officers, not to him self obviously, he did not deserver that honour,
There was much Rejoicing all over the Grand Armée,
as Napoleon was now headed back towars Paris, his officers put in charge of organizing the redeployment of the Grand Armée..
he had brought a briefcase with him back from Spain, to as proof of the evil doings the Spaniards had been up to...
one of the British delegates had stayed back when the others went to London, and travelled with Napoleon back to Paris.. they sat in front of one another in the Train..
the delegate asked Napoleon whether the attrocity was in that briefcase
Napoleon went to the door and looked out through the Hallway, and went back in, saying yes, yes it is..
Napoleon then handed the briefcase to the Delegate, who then carefully opened the briefcase
the look on the mans face was... horrid.. he took a piece of paper out of it, and said to Napoleon..
Thank god you invaded them, we couldent let this get out of Spain...
Napoleon nodded with a paranoid look in his eyes.. the delegate quickly put the paper back into the briefcase, and closed it shut.. nodding to Napoleon in Approval..
The meeting was then interrupted as the food trolley lady knocked the door and asked if anyone wanted something from the Trolley
Napoleon shook his head, and the Trolley Lady looked towards the Delegate who said
"do you have vodka or Martini on that trolley of you'rs?" The Trolley Lady nodded, he then replied "vodka martini, shaken, not stirred"
Vive la France
