This chapter focuses on Theobald Wolf Tone's participation in the French army's roving mission in northern Europe in 1797. It explains that the expedition to Ireland was temporary cancelled because the French Directory was focusing on difficult peace negotiations with Austria and by an internal political crisis. It also compares the military skills of Louis Lazare Hoche and his main rival Napoleon Bonaparte and highlights his ambition and commitment to confront England directly.
