La campagna napoleonica in Egitto e Siria (1798-1801) fu combattuta nei territori ottomani di Egitto e Siria, proclamata per difendere gli interessi commerciali francesi, per stabilire imprese scientifiche nella regione e, infine, per scacciare gli inglesi dal subcontinente indiano.
The Napoleonic campaign in Egypt and Syria (1798-1801) was fought in the Ottoman territories of Egypt and Syria, proclaimed to defend French trade interests, to establish scientific enterprise in the region and ultimately to drive away the British from the Indian subcontinent. It was the primary purpose of the Mediterranean campaign of 1798, a series of naval engagements that included the capture of Malta. The campaign ended in defeat for Napoleon, and the withdrawal of French troops from the region. On the scientific front, the expedition eventually led to the discovery of the Rosetta Stone, creating the field of Egyptology.
