This review is from: Napoleon (Paperback)
A must-read for anyone interested in the Napoleon era. Time goes by as you can not put this book aside. It is true that the author does not hide its sympathy for his hero and in, this sense, it is not totally objective, specially when justifying the transition from a Republic to a "personal" Empire. However, after having read several critical biographies of Napoleon this was somehow a welcome change.
