Napoleon gathering the fleet - Invasion of Britain

Decree signed by Napoleon wrote to ordering the meeting of the flotilla at Boulogne - 30th August 1805. From 1803 to 1805 a new army of 200, 000 men, known as the Armee des cotes de l'Ocean (Army of the Ocean Coasts) or the Armee de l'Angleterre (Army of England), was gathered and trained at camps at Boulogne, Bruges and Montreuil. A large "National Flotilla" of invasion barges was built in Channel ports along the coasts of France and Holland (then under French domination as the Batavian Republic), right from Etaples to Flushing, and gathered at Boulogne. The planned invasion of Great Britain however never happened and was eventually called off later in 1805. Date: 1805
