The writing flows naturally and avoids the pitfalls of passing judgment on this sometimes controversial leader in history.
Here is Amazon's description:
" Napoleon achieved countless military victories and unified half a continent; he was a corporal, general, consul, and emperor. The life and career of Napoleon sounds impossible-but it's true. His success, though brilliant, was also short-lived. Robert Burleigh's biography of the Little Corporal, illustrated by period artworks and artifacts, describes the remarkable rise and fall of this charismatic and unusual man. "
