Description
Information
A masterly biography of Napoleon, concentrating on his private life, by historian Christopher Hibbert.

Modern history has produced one single myth on a heroic scale to rival those of Alexander and Caesar - that of Napoleon. The continuing fascination of this astonishingly gifted man is reflected in the number of books published each year on various aspects of the Napoleonic legend: some 250,000 volumes in all since Napoleon's mysterious death in 1821.

What is still needed is now provided by Christopher Hibbert. This is an authoritative up-to-date account of Napoleon's private life at all stages of his developing and extraordinary career, based on the fruits of modern research; studies of and his character; interests and tastes; his friendships, enmities and love affairs; his relations with the members of his remarkable family.

The book is also based on the impressions he made on his contemporaries away from the council chamber and the battlefield; his personal life at war, in exile and as emperor in peacetime, the mystery surrounding his death. In short, the man revealed behind the soldier, statesman and legend.
