Professor Michael Broers uses Napoleon’s own uncensored words for the first time to throw fresh light on the life of the French leader. Volume one of his new biography is the first in any language to make use of a new version of Napoleon’s correspondence compiled by the Fondation Napoléon to replace the sanitised version published under the Second Empire. Broers reveals a man of intense emotion, iron discipline, acute intelligence and boundless energy. He tells how Napoleon rose to power through sheer determination, ruthlessness, and careful calculation.

Broers is professor of Western European history at the University of Oxford and author of The Napoleonic Empire in Italy, 1796-1814, winner of the Grand Prix Napoléon prize, and Napoleon’s Other War: Bandits, Rebels and their Pursuers in the Age of Revolutions.
