This biographical companion provides easy access to information about the Emporer Napoleon through some 330 entries which cover significant events, people, and other topics such as the principal Napoleonic campaigns, and all the major battles including Waterloo and Austerlitz.


It is claimed by some that Napolean was a military genius with enormous administrative and organizational abilities who, between 1799 and 1814, established an empire which spread across Europe. One of the most significant warrior-conquerors in history, he was also a ruthless dictator who suppressed all opposition. Paradoxically, his wide-ranging legal and administrative reforms promoted liberalism and democracy, whilst his military conquests ultimately encouraged national unification movements. This biographical companion provides easy access to information about the Emperor Napoleon through some 330 entries which cover significant events, people, and other topics such as the principal Napoleonic campaigns, all the major battles including Waterloo and Austerlitz, Napoleon's most important generals and marshals, Josephine de Beauharnais, and the Napoleonic code.
