Well supported by paintings and illustrations of the time, this study of Napoleon Bonaparte uses contemporary works to dispel several of the myths about him as a politician and commander in the field. Painting a very detailed picture of his eventful journey, from humble beginnings in Corsica to the pinnacle of power, it examines both his personal and his public life, together with his relationships with those close to him and, eventually, the nation as a whole.
