In the Battle of Austerlitz, Napoleon didn't win as conclusively against the Allied army as as he wanted,but experts now see that the original plan was a tactical masterpiece and so it is often mentioned along with Cannes and Blenheim. Many historians argue that Napoleon got carried away by his win at Austerlitz and so began to lose his grip on the real world. French foreign policy started to get mixed in with Napoleon's own views after the battle according to some sources. Others, like Victor Hugo, worshipped the memory of the great success but many considered it a great genocidal war crime against the peoples of the colonies and so one could say that the Battle Of Austerlitz is still controversial today.
