In the history of warfare, an elite group of men have attainedlegendary status through their courage, ambition, and unrivaledmilitary genius. In Heroes and Villains, acclaimed historianFrank McLynn focuses on six of the most powerful and magneticleaders of all time, brilliantly evoking the critical moments wheneach of these warriors proved his mettle in battle, changing theirown lives, the destiny of their people, and in some cases, thehistory of the world. We discover what drove Spartacus to take on the might of Romeagainst seemingly impossible odds, and how the young Napoleonrose to power in dramatic fashion at the siege of Toulon. Heroesand Villains is more than a collection of individual biographies. Byexamining the complex psychologies of these extraordinary men, McLynn builds up a convincing profile of the ultimate warrior.
