Description - Napoleon's Wars by Charles J. Esdaile

No other soldier has provoked as much anger and fervour as Napoleon Bonaparte. Was he a conqueror or a liberator? An aggressor or a victim? A sinner or a saint? Charles Esdaile's compelling history reframes our understanding of this titanic figure, going beyond the legend that Napoleon himself helped create to form a new, genuinely international context for his military career From Spain to Russia the Balkans to Scandinavia Poland to Turkey, Napoleon's Wars looks anew at the conflicts that lasted twelve years and claimed nearly two million lives, and at the ruinous quest for glory that lay behind them. 'His masterly account of the Napoleonic wars ... makes the familiar story fresh' Economist. Books of the Year
