A glorious?and conclusive?chronicle of the wars waged by one of the most polarizing figures in military history

Acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic as a new standard on the subject, this sweeping, boldly written history of the Napoleonic era reveals its central protagonist as a man driven by an insatiable desire for fame, and determined ?to push matters to extremes.? More than a myth-busting portrait of Napoleon, however, it offers a panoramic view of the armed conflicts that spread so quickly out of revolutionary France to countries as remote as Sweden and Egypt. As it expertly moves through conflicts from Russia to Spain, Napoleon's Wars proves to be history writing equal to its subject?grand and ambitious?that will reframe the way this tumultuous era is understood.

Review:

'Napoleon's contradictions dominate every page, his character and policies are skilfully analysed ... written in a lucid and engaging style that keeps the pages turning. Napoleon's Wars will be a standard text for students and general readers for years to come'
