Summary
Napoleon Bonaparte's astounding life and military genius have captured imaginations for two centuries. Now award-winning historian David A. Bell provides a succinct and elegant portrait, offering an original and lively account of Napoleon's dazzling career and firmly situating him in the historical context of revolutionary France. Bell emphasizes the astonishing sense of human possibility - for both good and ill - that Napoleon represented. By his late twenties, he was already one of the greatest generals in European history. At thirty, he had become absolute master of Europe's most powerful country. In his early forties, he ruled a European empire mightier than any since Rome, fighting wars that changed the shape of the continent. But his fall was epic as well, leading him to spend his last years in miserable exile in the South Atlantic
