€14.90

Thiers, Bainville, Lefebvre, Tulard ... Napoleon has no shortage of biographers. We would be surprised by it. Are the men who have left so deep an imprint on their time so numerous? The history of Napoleon, his memory, his myth have literally obsessed the nineteenth century and part of the twentieth. Today, the legend has faded, the world has changed. The warlike epic of the Empire is no longer a dream for our contemporaries, for whom war appears as the incarnation of Evil. But Napoleon was not only a conqueror. An outstanding strategist, he is also the most gifted student of Machiavelli in the art of governing. More than the warrior, it is the First Consul who, to have finished the Revolution and founded the institutions of which she had the idea, still fascinates. Both an ancient hero and a modern bourgeois, he occupies a unique place in world history. This first volume, Bonaparte, retraces the story of the young Napoleon, from Corsica to the Tuileries, from the dark years of childhood to the proclamation of the Consulate for life in 1802 where, without yet wearing the title of Emperor, he restores to her profit the hereditary monarchy.
