ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how Napoléon Buonaparte rose into power and became the emperor of France. One key episode in Napoléon's early military career unfolded in the city of Toulon in the fall of 1793 where he took his first serious command and his first steps on the path to power. Buonaparte's first task when he arrived at Toulon was to organize the artillery. He established an artillery park, put some order into the service and employed all possible noncommissioned officers. Three days after he arrived, the army had adequate artillery.
