The few (six pounder?) guns that Serbian rebels used in '05, '06 were perhaps sourced from the Krajina? Smuggled out of location to the East?From a strictly Serb point of view, I have to give my vote for the Coallition. Napoleon advised the Porte to quickly stamp out the Serb uprising and even offered assistance in doing so. He also refused Karađorđe's proposal to ally the Serbs with France. And of course had his invasion of Russia not forced the Russians to turn their attention away from the Balkans, the First Serbian Uprising might have even been a success.
Coalition.Since we have such threads on the American Revolutionary War and the Hundred Years' War let's have one on the Napoleonic Wars as well.
Who do you support, the coalition or Napoleon's France, allies and satellites? Countries which have been forced to join Napoleon but weren't heavily bent on fighting for him such as Prussia from 1807 until 1812 count as part of the coalition. Satellites such as the Kingdom of Italy and the Confederation of the Rhine count as part of the French alliance.
Who do you support and why?

I had an answer on this topic from another Serbian member a while ago but curious what your sources do suggest.
Maybe, but as I said, I voted from a Serb perspective and Napoleon's victory would have only brought trouble to the Serbs.You realize that the regimes of the European monarchies were equally as repressive if not more so?
I mean anyone who voted for the Coalition also voted for serfdom and the Russian police state. Prussia wasn't much better and Austria was only a slight improvement over Prussia.
Oh, the Napoleon-Hitler comparison... I have no comment.french Hitler without genocide
For the amount of countries they took, they did invade more than Hitler but this also takes into account the tiny HRE and Italian states, not disputing that they did invade but this needs further elaboration.invaded more countries than Nazi Germany
Really? When did Napoleon state he wanted to conquer the entire world?tried to conquer the world
How is this bad? It's a legitimate strategy used to great effect both by Wellington and the Russians, so the French were hardly the only ones to use it if they used it.scorched earth tactics
