A must to understand the man Oct 17, 2005
Napoléon by Bainville is the best book ever written because it shows a young boy, who hardly speaks the language when he comes to France military school in Brienne, how destiny evolves and how such a brain is always thinking, learning, doing, deciding, organizing and finding new ways in front of new challenges no matter how dark it looks.
Leading its army he knew how to address soldiers, make battle plans and direct battle. It is a miracle he was not killed on the battle front many times. It also shows the perfidious Albion trying hard to make alliances to out maneuver his plans of making Europe from France to Ural mountains. It shows the smallness of today's leaders that do not decide without an army of consultants, spinners and writers and do not have the wisdom to make something that could last 200 years like the civil code.
