Napoleon Bonaparte by John Stevens Cabot Abbott read book description and reviews

Napoleon is a man who continues to fascinate us. Military genius, dictator (benevolent or otherwise), administrator, law-giver — he was all of these. He was believed to be short in stature — 'The Little Corporal' — but seemed to be one of those rare individuals who could fill a room with his presence. (He has been reported in various works as being five-feet, five-inches tall, and five-feet, seven-inches tall — not significantly different from the average height of men in his time.) He could be charming, cruel, unreasonable, generous, insightful and periodically incompetent. He solidified the aspirations of the French Revolution and then retracted some of the freedoms that had been gained from it. He fought the English but admired them. He sought to create an empire in Europe and North America, and then gave away 800,000 square miles of it for four cents an acre to Thomas Jefferson.

    More of a novel than a history lesson
  • Informative

    By Bill648
    Hard to read, but definitely informative.

    A mice read but poor construction. The book begins after Napolean has risen to power. It has many typographical errors. But the most difficult failing is the absence of many pages in the middle that cover the capitulation of England. There are also at least two segments that are clearly from some other story. Very odd
