Book - 2004
Rate this:
The first volume in the Napoleon quartet, already a European publishing phenomenon. Tracing the first thirty years of the Little Emperor's life, Max Gallo subtly introduces one of the greatest characters from European history. Brilliantly recreating the sights and sounds of Eighteenth Century France, Max Gallo's first volume of four also dramatises Napoleon's rise as a ambitious soldier, as well as his infatuation with the beguiling Josephine. Ending with his ascension to power in the revolution, this is a compelling and passionate story. This is historical fiction of the very highest calibre, wonderfully detailed and utterly captivating.
