Chapter Summary: Chapter Nine finds France at the end of the War with Britain and the Quasi War with America and with a new player on the scene in the person of Napoléon Bonaparte. Under pressure from the maritime bourgeoisie and spurred by his own ambition, Napoleon sends his brother-in-law Leclerc with 24,000 troops to secure the island and remove Toussaint from power. The chapter will conclude with Leclerc's advance and Toussaint's retreat.
