Napoleon: His Life, His Battles, His Empire offers an unprecedented insight into the mind of this extraordinary man who, from modest beginnings on the small island of Corsica, became Emperor of France and its vast empire. It examines the battles that made him a legend - Marengo, Austerlitz, Jena and Wagram - and looks at his social and political reforms which revolutionized the western world.
Illustrated with stunning artworks, sketches and photographs, the authors draw on painstakingly researched documents, including the Treaty of Campo Formio, signed by Napoleon, love letters from Napoleon to Josephine, Napoleon's proclamation to his troops before the Battle of Austerlitz and the codicil to the great man's will, to give a glorious account of a fascinating man.
