Napoleon and world history: What if...? Napoleon Bonaparte doesn't come up much in conversation these days, which is hardly surprising given that he has been dead for two centuries. People often compare Napoleon to Hitler, another dictator who allegedly tried to "conquer the world", but that's just wrong. Hitler never wanted to conquer the world. The plan was abandoned because nobody told Napoleon that those warships could carry enough drinking water for such a large army.
