Stimulating and genuinely innovative.
A fresh and highly intelligent look at Napoleon.
Breathtaking. The best--and certainly the most original--scholar writing in this field writing in English. Broers succeeds admirably.
Does an excellent job of delineating the emotional and intellectual development of the Corsican general-turned-French emperor. Offers a wonderful sense of the genius--and man--who was so stunningly able to remake European boundaries and mores after the meltdown from the French Revolution. Among the plethora of Napoleon biographies, this is immensely engaging for lay readers.
The great strength of Broers's book arises from its detail, empathy and even-handedness. He draws extensively on the newly edited volumes of Napoleon's 'Correspondence Generale, ' as well as the thinking of numerous contemporary scholars, whom he generously acknowledges. He presents his information clearly and sometimes even lyrically, though his pages nonetheless demand close attention. This is a serious work, the product of reflection as well as research befitting a distinguished professor of Western European History at Oxford.--Michael Dirda
