Historian and award-winning writer Professor Munro Price tells the dramatic story of the two years leading up to Napoleon’s abdication in 1814. Price uses new material to shed fresh light on one of the most dramatic periods of European history. How did Napoleon lose control both of his empire and of France during this short period of history, and why did he refuse to accept a compromise that would have allowed him to keep his throne, instead gambling on total victory or utter defeat?

Price is professor of modern history at the University of Bradford and has a particular focus on the French Revolution. He has written a number of works including The Fall of the French Monarchy: Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette and the Baron de Breteuil, which won the 2002 Franco-British Society Literary Prize, and The Perilous Crown: France Between Revolutions. He is a regular reviewer for national newspapers and magazines and has appeared on television and radio in the UK and France.
