Napoleon the Great


Andrew Roberts conveys Napoleon’s tremendous energy, both physical and intellectual, and the attractiveness of his personality, even to his enemies. He has walked 53 of Napoleon battlefields, and has absorbed the gigantic new French edition of Napoleon letters, which allows a complete re-evaluation of this exceptional man.

‘With his customary flair and keen historical eye, Andrew Roberts has delivered the goods again. This could well be the best single volume biography of Napoleon in English for the last four decades. A tour de force that belongs on every history-lover’s bookshelf!’
Jay Winik, author of April 1865

A noted public speaker, Andrew is represented by the Washington Speakers Bureau:
