The summer of 1807 was an important point in the British war effort against Napoleonic France. The new British government sought to return to a European based strategy following a period of isolation under the previous administration. However, the defeat of Britain’s allies and the subsequent Treaty of Tilsit, which saw French influence extend across Europe, left Britain without a foothold on the continent. This paper will examine the role of intelligence in influencing British war policy in this new climate, focussing on the Northern Theatre, which was of primary strategic importance.
