NAPOLEAN: THE MAN BEHIND THE MYTH

Synopsis

Napoleon inspires passionately held and often conflicting visions. Was he a godlike genius, a romantic avatar, a megalomaniac monster, a compulsive warmonger or just a nasty little dictator? Adam Zamoyski strips away the lacquer of prejudice and places Napoleon the man within the context of his times. He does not justify or condemn but seeks instead to understand Napoleon's extraordinary trajectory.
