A thrilling tale of military and political genius . . . Roberts is an uncommonly gifted writer.” The Washington Post
Austerlitz, Borodino, Waterloo: his battles are among the greatest in history, but Napoleon Bonaparte was far more than a military genius and an astute leader of men. Like George Washington and his own hero Julius Caesar, he was one of the greatest soldier-statesmen of all time.
Andrew Roberts’s New York Timesbestselling Napoleon is the first single-volume, cradle-to-grave biography to take advantage of the recent publication of Napoleon’s thirty-three thousand surviving letters, which radically transform our understanding of this extraordinary man. At last we see him as he was: protean multitasker, inspired leader, passionate romantic, and visionary builder of the first modern state who cracked jokes in even the direst situations. Roberts, an award-winning historian, visited fifty-three of Napoleon’s sixty battle sites and St. Helena and made crucial discoveries in archives around the world. Here at last is a biography worthy of its subject: magisterial, insightful, and beautifully written by one of our foremost historians.
Andrew Roberts is the bestselling, award-winning author of The Storm of War, Masters and Commanders, Napoleon & Wellington, and Waterloo, among other books. A fellow of the Napoleonic Institute, his books have won the Wolfson History Prize and the British Army Military Book Award.
