A coalition of countries (Austria, Prussia, Russia, and Great Britain) joined together to combat the increasing power of France. After bitter battles, Russia dropped out of the Second Coalition in 1799. In May 1800, Napoleon led his famous march across the Alps, defeating the Austrian army yet again. Great Britain was left alone and was weary of war. The Treaty of Amiens was signed between the British and French in 1802. The Second Coalition was destroyed. For the first and only time in Napoleon’s reign, France was at peace with the world.
