The snow in Russia was a big factor. It was hard for Napoleon to

mobilize his forces through all of the snow. His forces were also

unprepared for the weather conditions. Along with this they faced

fevers and colds which put even more of a damper on his forces.

The English Channel was also a big factor in Napoleon's

conquests. It would have been an unwise move to send troops across

the English Channel when the British had one of the most superior

naval forces of their time. Sending the troops to Britain would

have been a waste of his forces.
