Reign of Napoleon Bonaparte by Robert B. Asprey
Book Description"Robert Asprey's biography bids fair to become the standard work in English on the most prominent avatar of the 'great man' theory of history."--Boston Globe. Robert Asprey completes his definitive, two-volume biography with an intimate, fast-paced look at Napoleon's daring reign and tragic demise with more of the personality and passion that marked the first volume of this cradle to the grave biography. In The Rise of Napoleon Bonaparte, Asprey showed us that Napoleon was not the father of chaos, but rather an heir to it. In this companion volume, we see Napoleon struggling to subdue the turmoil. We peer over Napoleon's shoulder as he solidifies his growing empire through a series of marriages, military victories, and shrewd diplomatic manipulations. We watch Napoleon lose control of his empire, plot his return from Elba, rally peasants in his march to Paris, endure defeat at Waterloo and suffer exile and a lonely death on the island of St. Helena. Robert Asprey tells this fascinating, tragic tale in lush narrative detail.

Ever since 1821, when he died at age 51 on the forlorn and windswept island of St Helena, Napoleon Bonaparte has been remembered as either demi-god or devil incarnate. In "The Rise of Napoleon Bonaparte", Robert Asprey instead treats him as a human.
