Napoleon Bonaparte

Napoléon Bonaparte was a French statesman and military leader who rose to prominence during the French Revolution and led several successful campaigns during the French Revolutionary Wars. Napoleon dominated European and global affairs for more than a decade while leading France against a series of coalitions in the Napoleonic Wars. He won most of these wars and the vast majority of his battles, building a large empire that ruled over continental Europe before its final collapse in 1815.


Napoléon is considered one of the greatest commanders in history, and his wars and campaigns are studied at military schools worldwide. Napoleon’s political and cultural legacy has endured as one of the most celebrated and controversial leaders in human history.


Recently I was looking for a book, that will have everything that I need to know about Napoleon Bonaparte gathered in one place, and I think that I've found the book. What an excellent biography, well written, the reading was really enjoyable. I learned a lot more interesting things about this historical person. Recommended for everyone.


This book is one of the more interesting and well written, easy to read biographies of Napoleon Bonaparte. If that is all you want it works.


Making historical figures into relateable, identifiable people you can see yourself in is what good biographies do, in addition to accurate narratives. This book does both. It took me just shy of a few weeks almost a year to finish but well worth it.
