Item description for The L of Napoleon to Josephine by Napoleon Bonaparte...

Napoleon was but a poor, insignificant army officer. Josephine was a widow. They met in a Paris ravaged by revolution and despairing of war. They fell in love and married. Their relationship became a legend.

From those early days in Paris to the bitter divorce in 1809 the couple kept in touch through intimate letters. Napoleon's insatiable ambition took him from Italy to Egypt, from general to emperor, yet he and Josephine wrote frank, revealing letters to keep in touch. This collection of letters reveals much about the times through which Napoleon and Josephine prospered and about the forces which played upon a couple who rose at astonishing speed to the very height of prestige, power and success. This new edition has commentaries, a chronology and biographies of leading personalities.

Here is their love, here are their squabbles. Napoleon and Josephine live on in the pages of this book. Contains 67 illustrations.

Reviews - What do customers think about The L of Napoleon to Josephine?

A glimpse into the written words of Napoleon  Jun 26, 2006
I loved this little book and read through it very quickly. It was interesting to me to read Napoleon's personal and private correspondence to Josephine. Each of the letters are presented in chronological order as they were written. One can very easily read Napoleon's varying moods through his written words at the time of each letter that is presented. This alone allows the book to be very readable and interesting on so many levels.

However, the book really shines in the "filling in of the blanks". In other words, simple explainations are given to help the reader understand some of the comments written in each particular letter or to help the reader understand some of the events that were occuring or fixing to occur at the time of each writing. One therefore does not have to be a Napoleon aficionado to enjoy this book.
