Summary note
"Alistair Horne describes the extraordinary climate of ambition and insecurity in which Napoleon's circle lived, and the social upheavals in France and much of Europe, during Napoleon's brilliant but bloody twenty-five-year rule. He concentrates on what everyday life was like: on the lesser known civil, rather than military, aspects of the times."--BOOK JACKET.
