Napoleon Bonaparte was a French military general who crowned himself the first emperor of France. His Napoleonic Code remains a model for governments : Napoleon: A Life by Adam Zamoyski; The story of Napoleon has been written many times. In some versions, he is a military genius, in others a war-obsessed tyrant. Here, historian Adam Zamoyski cuts through the mythology and explains Napoleon against the background of the European Enlightenment, and what he was himself seeking to achieve.

  Any? There have been more books written about him since days have passed since he died. The amount of books on him is simply astounding; unfortunately, so is the lack of quality. Many of the books written on him are, quite frankly, beyond appallin. I wanted to read this book because I didn't know much about Napoleon, So I thought after reading this book I'd know more about his life when he grew up under the circumstances he grew up. But this book focuses on his military achievements only, not telling much about what I wanted to know. So it's kind of disappointment.4/5.   Military Life Under Napoleon by Elzear Blaze, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(17). - Buy Military Life Under Napoleon book online at best prices in India on Read Military Life Under Napoleon book reviews & author details and more at Free delivery on qualified : Elzear Blaze.
