I remember that the Rosetta stone was discovered in 1799 just after Napoleon won the battle of the pyramids.

wilki24: Yes, actually there was only one major battle in the entire Russian Campaign, Borodino, and yes he won. This may have been the origin of the expression to "win the battle but lose the war"
