Author(s): Max Gallo
The enthralling third volume in the Napoleon quartet, already a huge European publishing phenomenon. It is 1806 and Napoleon is master of an empire covering half of Europe. He subdues kings, conquers women and defies the Pope himself over the Continental Blockade. In this dazzling mix of history and creativity, Max Gallo brilliantly recreates the most pivotal and turbulent years of the Little Corporal's reign, ending with his 500,000 strong army's march into Russia in 1812. Shifting between the battlefield and the bedroom, this book follows every step of Napoleon's relentless pursuit of power.
