I know... So many biographies have been done on Napoleon.

But I can assure you this one is very good as it uses as one of the sources the French edition in 15 volumes of Napoleon correspondence that was edited by the Napoleon Foundation between 2000 and 2015. That edition is the most complete. Anyway, Michael Broers wrote a few books on the napoleonic period, and I have to say that his biography of Napoleon in 3 volumes is excellent.
Volume 1 Napoleon, Soldier of Destiny
Volume 2 Napoleon, The Spirit of the Age
Volume 3 Napoleon, The Decline and Fall of an Empire: 1811-1821

The third volume came out a few days ago and I am enjoying it very much.
