A map illustrating the decisive final stage of the Siege of Toulon, France. This military operation of the French Revolutionary Wars lasted from August 28 to December 19, 1793, and propelled the reputation of the 24-year-old artillery captain Napoleon Bonaparte. Despite the overwhelming superiority of the invading Republican armies, the siege of the southern French coastal city of Toulon and its forts lasted nearly four months due mainly to the incompetence of the Revolutionary Command and the mutual dislike between General Jean-François Carteaux and his chief of artillery, Napoleon.
