9780141014203: Napoleon's Wars: An International History, 1803-1815

Attempts to reframe our understanding of Napoleon. This book creates a different context for Napoleon's career. It sees the battles as almost side-effects, the consequences of rulers being willing to take the immense risks of fighting or supporting Napoleon - risks that could result in the extinction of entire countries and regimes.

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 126 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. No other soldier has provoked as much anger or as much fervour as Napoleon Bonaparte. Was he a monster, driven on by an endless, ruinous quest for military adventure - or was he a social and political visionary, brought down by petty reactionaries clinging to their privileges? Charles Esdaile s major new work reframes our understanding of Napoleon. Napoleon s Wars looks beyond the insatiable greed for glory to create a new, genuinely international context for Napoleon s career. The battles themselves Esdaile sees as almost side-effects, the consequences of rulers being willing to take the immense risks of fighting or supporting Napoleon - risks that could result in the extinction of entire countries and regimes.
