ᦒ Free Hardcover Read  ✩ Napoleon: A Life  ⡸ Kindle Ebook Author Andrew Roberts ⣄ ᦒ Free Hardcover Read ✩ Napoleon: A Life ⡸ Kindle Ebook Author Andrew Roberts ⣄ An Best Book of the Month, November 2014 There have been many books about Napoleon, but Andrew Roberts single volume biography is the first to make full use of the ongoing French publication of Napoleons 33,000 letters Seemingly leaving no stone unturned, Roberts begins in Corsica in 1769, pointing to Napoleons roots on that islandand a resulting fascination with the Roman Empireas an early indicator of what history might hold for the boy Napoleons upbringingfrom his roots, to his penchant for holing up and reading about classic wars, to his education in France, all seemed to point in one directionand by the time he was 24, he was a French general Though he would be dead by fifty one, it was only the beginning of what he would accomplish Although Napoleon A Life is 800 pages long, it is both enjoyable and illuminating Napoleon comes across as whip smart, well studied, ambitious to a fault, a little awkward, and perhaps most importantly, a man who could turn on the charm when he needed to Through his portrait, Roberts seems to be arguing two things that Napoleon was far than just a complex, and that his contributions to the world greatly surpassed those of the evil dictators that some compare him to The historian, like the orator, Roberts quotes Napoleon as saying, must persuade He must convince I, for one, am convinced A fascinating read Chris SchluepPraise for Napoleon An epically scaled new biography Roberts brilliantly conveys the sheer energy and presence of Napoleon the organizational and military whirlwind who, through crisp and incessant questioning, sized up people and problems and got things done His dynamism shines in Robertss set piece chapters on major battles like Austerlitz, Jena, and Marengo, turning visionary military maneuvers into politically potent moments The New York Times Book Review Roberts is a masterly storyteller I would recommend his book to anyone seeking an accessible chronicle, rich in anecdote, of Napoleons fantastic story Max Hastings, The Wall

33,000 odd letters, which began being published in Paris only in 2004 Second, Roberts, who has previously written on Napoleon and Wellington, is a masterly analyst of the French emperors many battles Third, his book is beautifully written and a pleasure to read The Economist Napoleon remade France and much of Europe in his fifteen years in power and proved himself one of historys greatest military commanders Robertss access to Napoleons thirty three thousand letters, only recently available, allowed him to create a fully human portrait of this larger than life figure The Wall Street Journal,
