Product Description:

Readers Union 1972 hardback with dust jacket

From the Back Cover:

'I wanted to find a Napoleon I could picture as a living, breathing man.'
Vincent Cronin superbly realises his objective in this, probably the finest of all modern biographies of Napoleon. It is generally accepted as the author's masterpiece.

"To present Napoleon plausibly as the classical hero of his own imagining takes nerve, originality, prodigious powers of research and a true historical imagination. Vincent Cronin displays all these qualities."
MICHAEL FOOT, 'Evenung Standard'

"Mr Cronin is not only very calm and cool, he is lucid, writes plainly and well, and organises his huge amount of raw material capably… A book of great interest."
NIGEL DENNIS, 'Sunday Telegraph,'

"It was high time that a skilful writer came to grips with this classical figure of a great man, and it is satisfactory to see how Mr Cronin has seized the opportunity to write an excellent book."
ECONOMIST

"A masterly book which tells this magnificent story with deceptive ease… Here is a fine portrait of a famous man and a cool, elegant narrative of a prodigious destiny."
BIRMINGHAM POST
