A very emotional life of Napoleon, but not revealing of the subject's emotions, only those of the biographer. Mr. Emil liked Nappy, especially the image of the earlier, liberal Napoleon. I don't think this vision is a good one. ( )

Close view of Napoleon's thoughts and emotions. Interesting. ( )

A treasured book from childhood; a romantic history of Napoleonic long on emotion and short on analysis.

Extremely over-rated. ( )
