Opis produktu:

A short and vivid biography, which deconstructs the Napoleonic myth and reveals the reality of his rule.

Written with great wit and panache, this biography also has a serious purpose: to make us face up to the moral bankruptcy of Napoleon's dictatorship. Johnson tells the whole story: his astonishing gift for figures and calculation, his mastery of cannon; his audacious, hyperactive and aggressive generalship and his simple battle tactics; his complete control of propaganda and the success of the cultural presentation of the Empire; the Code Napoleon; his failure as an international statesman, as Europe grew to hate him; his marshals and ministers; his wives, mistresses, personal style and working methods; the British blockade and the Continental System; the mistakes in Spain and Russia. The escape from Elba, the events leading up to Waterloo and the battle itself, which gets a full treatment, is particularly riveting.

Alistair Horne was educated at Le Rosey, Switzerland and Jesus College, Cambridge. From 1952 to 1955 he worked as a foreign correspondent for the Daily Telegraph. His numerous books on history and politics have been translated into over ten languages, he was awarded the Hawthornden Prize (The Price of Glory) and the Wolfson Prize (A Savage War of Peace). In 1992 he was awarded the CBE; in 1993 he received the French Legion d'Honneur for his work on French history and a Litt.D. from Cambridge University. He was knighted in 2003 for services to Franco-British relations.
