From New York Times bestselling author Paul Johnson, “a very readable and entertaining biography” (The Washington Post) about one of the most important figures in modern European history: Napoleon Bonaparte In an ideal pairing of author and subject, the magisterial historian Paul Johnson offers a vivid look at the life of the strategist, general, and dictator who conquered much of Europe. Following Napoleon from the barren island of Corsica to his early training in Paris, from his meteoric victories and military dictatorship to his exile and death, Johnson examines the origins of his ferocious ambition. In Napoleon's quest for power, Johnson sees a realist unfettered by patriotism or ideology. And he recognizes Bonaparte’s violent legacy in the totalitarian regimes of the twentieth century. Napoleon is a magnificent work that bears witness to one individual's ability to work his will on history.

The Women Who Conquered a Conqueror. Napoleon Bonaparte's adventures in the boudoir makes for fascinating reading; Masson presents his hero as a man who was by turns passionate, peremptory, magnanimous, and even playful with women. Napoleon is followed through affairs casual and intense, from his engagement to D sir e-Eug nie Clary, whom he casts off for the enchanting but spendthrift, older Josephine de Beauharnais and beyond. Whether they sought him out for social advantage or out of admiration, Napoleon never suffered for the lack of beautiful feminine companionship, except by his own choice. One of the most striking narratives is Napoleon's violent courting of Marie Walewska, who becomes his "Polish wife" and bears him a son out of wedlock. The turning point in his fortunes hangs upon his desperation to have legitimate sons. When Napoleon divorces Josephine to secure a political marriage with Marie-Louise, Princess of Austria, it proves to be Bonaparte's undoing, even as it provides the longed-for heir. Written by a man who gained access to the most extraordinary, intimate details of Napoleon's life, and who defends his every course of action, this book offers a distinctly French perspective of love, power, and history.
