NAPOLEON BONAPARTE (MASTER OF WAR) - (REISSUE 2018)
A reissue of the popular 2018 publication, this expertly researched and illustrated 100-page special provides a real insight into Napoleon Bonaparte – the most powerful man in Europe for more than a decade.
Still a case study for modern military strategists, his is one of the most remarkable rags-to-riches stories of all time.
Napoleon rose from obscure origins in Corsica to become Emperor of the French. The great nations of Europe repeatedly combined their forces against him, only to be thwarted each time by the revolutionary general and his Grande Armée.
However, the tables were turned when, in 1812, he invaded Russia where his army of more than half a million men perished in the cold and three years later his remarkable reign was to end on the battlefield of Waterloo.
