First Sentence
But for the French Revolution, Napoleone di Buonaparte, who until 1796 customarily spelled his name in the Italian fashion, might never have come to history's notice, remaining just an obscure artillery officer. Read the first page

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For actual content some enthusiasts and Historians will find the content lacking in volume. However this book is extremely well presented with an encouraging and artistic attempt to give the book the appearance of age and patina. This to my personal taste enhances this volume and it does look good. As is typical of Richard Holmes some pullouts gives us the idea from the soldier of the day the terrible ,sad, courageous and even a logistic look at what it would have been like back then. It is nothing like as complete a volume on skirmishes , battles as say Colonel Nick lipscombes book which is also a beautiful volume and clearly does not attempt to be. However this is a very beautiful and well presented book of facts and will enhance any Military Book Collection or Library worth purchasing and one has to think of the work placed into this book which does justify its price tag - the offer price by Amazon is excellent and I recommend that you snap it up. Many plates of pictures and the pullouts makes it a showpiece with an aged antique look. I highly recommend this Richard Holmes book!

I have several of these box sets & this one is my new favourite. Absolutely jammed with colour & information & examples of documents of the day. The feel of the set is also one of quality as well, so anyone receiving this as a gift will certainly get the sense that they're holding something very special.
A good investment for any age or experience level & certainly interactive enough to capture anyone's interest.

Excellent book, just received it the other day and have spent every spare moment going through it since. Uniquely has lots of pull outs, maps from the era in the different chapters. Richard Holmes books are well worth the purchase for anyone with an interest in the Napoleonic era !
