The product of twenty years of laborious hard work, this is the definitive work on Napoleon and his times at the helm of the French Nation, written by no less than the first President of the Third Republic.
Thiers moved in the highest circles of society and met with many of the surviving generals and statesmen of France and her opponents and wove their recollections into this monumental history. Filled with a particularly Gallic flavour without going into hero-worship, this multi-volume history has stood the test of time.
This first volume begins with Napoleon’s 1797 campaign to his ascent to the consulate in 1800.
Includes the Napoleonic Wars Map Pack with over 155 maps and plans following the military career of Napoleon.
