Alistair Horne is a leading scholar of French history. Here he trains his sights on one of the most compelling figures of the 19th century, Napoleon Bonaparte. Far from a mere dictator, Napoleon was a military, political and social visionary whose legacy can still be felt in France and all over the world. Horne examines the one-time emperor at his most human, from his greatest triumphs to his disastrous failures.

"Historian Horne concentrates on the societal influences of the Little Corporal that the Western world feels to this day. For good or for ill, the age of Napoleon has not yet ended. Horne writes concisely with simple grace, a beguiling informality, and occasional humor. His prose, facts, and opinions sound quite elegant as delivered by the mellifluous Paul Hecht, one of America's great voice artists. He is detached, objective-sounding, metrically even, but never dull or pedantic. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
