Item description for Napoleon (Life & Times S.) (Life&Times) by Timothy Wilson-Smith...

In World War II the British commonly compared Napoleon to Hitler, an unjust comparison, but he has also been compared to Alexander the Great, with whom he shares qualities of youth, daring and unbridled ambition; to Julius Caesar, a soldier-politician with a similar skill as a propagandist; and to Augustus, analogous to the founder of the Roman Empire. Like all these men Napoleon had grave faults. Like them all he was a man whose achievement was on an heroic scale. This new biography will chart Napoleon's life, from Corsican boy-soldier to Emperor of the French and master of Europe. It will investigate the legend and acknowledge the legacy, which reshaped France, her system and laws, and the whole of Europe.

Reviews - What do customers think about Napoleon (Life & Times S.) (Life&Times)?

It's been done before by the same author  Jul 20, 2004
The author has an earlier book which I have entitled "Napoleon and his Artists" covering most of the same ground.
I did not buy this book for the above reason and a quick browse confirmed that suspicion.
Thus this book rehashes almost the same topics - Napoleon's life, his achievements especially in the artistic sphere and thru Josephine's patronage, his relations with the savants, during and after the Egyptian campaign, specific anecdotes on Vivant Denon, Jean L Gros,and of course Jacques L David. Nothing new.
Writing - A Forgotten Art  Dec 27, 2002
This is a compliliation of some of the worst writing I have even seen, which seems to be leading nowhere. If there is a theme, which has yet to emerge three-quarters into the book, it is buried in sentences such as: "In one part of Northern Europe, however, little was only briefly large."

Only if that sentence means something to you would I recommend buying it.
