Gentlemen

I would recommend “Napoleon the Great” by Andrew Roberts, can’t say I have finished it yet as its some 900 pages but from limited knowledge it seems a good modern look at the great man.

I have it on Kindle so avoiding a hernia :thumbsup:

Thanks for the recommendation.

In the US, it seems to be published under a different title "Napoleon: A life" http://www.amazon.com/Napoleon-Life-And ... 506&sr=1-1

It's now on my wish list :D

Hi David

Yes they were published under different titles either side of the pond.
Confused me at first but they are exactly the same.

I see Andrew Roberts has a number of Napoleonic books out...

Before i wear out the numbers on my credit card, are there any new insights in this book, not found in others?

Has anyone read the other books by Andrew Roberts?

Hi John

I had read The Storm of War: A New History of the Second World War which again as you would imagine is a big book :frenchlol:

The latest book is a good warts and all biography. He is an admirer but not a worshipper and a very good writer and historian. In all honesty I can’t say there is a lot new but some good in depth analysis of cause and effect.
