Debate: Was Napoleon a great general? - Why Do the Brits Win Every War?


Al and Guv'nor are launching the debate on some of Britain's most prominent leaders, enemies and battles. This week they are talking about Napoleon, was he the great General he thought he was? Let us know who you think wins this debate in the comments.

Al Murray and Sky HISTORY join a host of famous faces to uncover the truth behind Britain’s military past. Together with his alter ego The Pub Landlord, Al is on a quest to unpick the Great British psyche and understand whether the Brits are helped or hindered by their experiences in war. Joined by comedians and personalities from the UK and its closest neighbouring countries, Al will uncover whether Britain’s wartime record is all it’s cracked up to be and how regular harking back to Britain’s glory days is viewed by neighbours and ‘allies’.
