Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rites of Peace: The Fall of Napoleon and the Congress of Vienna (Paperback)
I am thoroughly enjoying this excellent book. After Europe had been turned on its head by 25 years of revolutionary and Napoleonic wars the crowned heads and their ministers convene to rebuild the world with all the petty jealousies, greed and suspicions that could be expected of them, magnificently researched and recounted by Zamoyski. I would strongly rcommend this book to anyone with an interest in history and diplomacy.
