Napoleon Bonaparte
Napoleon Bonaparte: A Life | Alan Schom
1 post | 2 read | 1 to read
A definitive biography of Bonaparte from his birth in Corsica to his death in exile on St Helena, this book examines all aspects of Bonapartes spectacular rise to power and his dizzying fall. It offers close examination of battlefield victories, personal torments, military genius, Bonapartes titanic ego and his relationships with the French government, Talleyrand, Wellington and Josephine. A consummate biography of a complex man.

I skim-read most of this book as it's very slow.

Using it for #sthelena #ReadingAfrica2022 @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB (would also work for #egypt - & you wouldn't have to complete the book to get there😂).

Cinfhen Yeah, every once in awhile a real dud turns up for a challenge 🙄at least it covered a few challenges 🙌🏻💜 3w
BarbaraBB Smart choice nevertheless 🤣 3w
Librarybelle I see Litsy has this at 944 pages! That‘s a pretty in depth biography, and I would imagine very dry. 3w
