"A well-researched and original history. . . . Hamilton-Williams tells a stirring story, revealing much new material." —Kirkus Reviews
"[Hamilton-Williams] is a fine writer and a ferocious logician. He has written a fascinating, if controversial, book." —Washington Times
"A dedicated Bonapartist, British historian Hamilton-Williams spares no one in exposing the double and triple crosses perpetrated." —Library Journal
In The Fall of Napoleon, David Hamilton-Williams offers a fresh and striking new assessment of the cause and effects of the Emperor's decline. Using substantial new research, the acclaimed author calls into question many of the views established in Napoleonic literature to date. Filled with fascinating details on the diplomatic intrigues linking Britain, Austria, Russia, and Prussia in the quest for Napoleon's demise, this riveting account reveals surprising new information on previously unknown secret terrorist organizations, assassination attempts, and the unbridled political duplicity that led to the French ruler's fall from power.
