From Alan Forrest, a preeminent British scholar, comes an exceedingly readable account of the man and his legend. Drawing on original research and his own distinguished background in French history, Forrest demonstrates that Napoleon was as much a product of his times as their creation
Summary
A comprehensive account of the life and enduring influence of the early 19th-century French emperor covers his rise to prominence, the ways his life reflected his time, and the lingering impact of his death on national stability
