Late July: The high command of the Sixth Coalition considers using poison to remove Napoleon's new-found aerial advantage but are won over by Laurence's proposition to win the dragon's hearts by implementing Temeraire and Perscitia's manifesto instead. Captain Poole, of the yellow reaper Fidelitas, suspecting that Laurence may attempt treason again, attempts to take him and Temeraire into custody. After a standoff with Granby, Poole draws his sword on Laurence only to discover that he has been appointed the supreme commander of the sixth Coalition's Aerial forces.

August: Napoleon and his allies engage with the Coalition forces of Russia, Prussia, Britain, Austria and China at the [[Battle of Reichenbach]]. After many hours of fighting, whereupon the town is reduced to ruin, Napoleon is abandoned by the Inca and betrayed by the Tswana, leaving him defeated and captured, along with Lien, personally by Laurence and Temeraire. Following the battle, Napoleon is forced to abdicate the throne in favour of his eldest son and go into exile, along with Lien, to St Helena, as part of a peace treaty that is otherwise surprisingly lenient towards France. Laurence, during the proceedings, quickly realises that the Inca retreat was deliberately planned by Anhuarque and Talleyrand, who have collaborated with the Sixth Coalition (via Hammond and Metternich) to do so in order to secure a more favourable peace for France.
