Summary
In this voluminous biography of Napoleon Bonaparte, historian Andrew Roberts relates the Corsican general's early life and traces the details of his military campaigns. Arguing that Napoleon was an effective statesman and an intellectual as well as a brilliant commander, Roberts strives to refute the conclusions of less admiring biographers. He also highlights Napoleon's influence on later military strategists. Though this is a long work, Napoleon will appeal to a wide range of readers. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
