The present book is a collected history of the life and times of the French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. He has been one of those extremely famous characters of the world history about whom the historians and writers never stopped writing. His genius for war and conquest had upset many a throne while he secured the lordship of Europe for himself to eventually consign to an island prison. His fame began from when the giant upheaval known as the French Revolution had thrown the Great Britain out of gear. As the proverb rightly says, he was ‘born to rule men’; he showed his brilliance not just as a conqueror but as an organiser too by bringing the scattered masses together, ‘recreated Government and the armies, made laws, and re-established religion’ to lead people to civilized order.
The author has put in lots of efforts to research and gather information in creating this volume which would be of much use and importance to those whose keen interest lies in studying the brilliance of warship and rule of one of the greatest rulers of the world’s history – Napoleon Bonaparte.
