NAPOLEONIC ANECDOTES

NAPOLEONIC ANECDOTES 
Over 300 anecdotes on Napoleon Bonaparte, his life, his battles, his marriages and his exiles. The Anecdotes range from the unusual, the macabre, the sad and the amusing. This book provides an entertaining and illuminating insight into one of history's most famous characters.
Biographies of Napoleon Bonaparte number in the hundreds. Louis Cohen's NAPOLEONIC ANECDOTES takes a different approach, being a collection of personal reminiscences from various family members, friends, fellow soldiers, French politicians, British and Russian adversaries, etc. Taken together, they present a cradle-to-grave, up-close-and-personal look at the most famous Frenchman of all time. Arranged in chronological sections, the first entry deals with Napoleon's birth on 15 August 1769. The last entry is a posthumous assessment of the man by S. D. Forester. In between the reader is treated to hundreds of glimpses of that remarkable individual at various stages of his life. What is revealed is a man who was, by turn, ambitious, vain, charming, hardworking, petty, paranoid, humorous, kind, ruthless, far-sighted, oblivious, romantic, inspirational and hot-tempered. Within the book's 224 pages, Napoleon is variously described as: "The greatest criminal who has appeared on Earth since Adam," "The first captain of all ages;" "The greatest soldier and the greatest administrator in history;" "A damned black hearted villain;" and "A bully, sour tempered and coarse minded." Napoleon himself stated that "A man such as I is either a god or a devil."
