Historical Atlas of the Napoleonic Era

Overview

The French Revolution sent shock waves through Europe, as the continent's remaining monarchs tried to stamp out the tide of republicanism. France was surrounded by enemies but fought them off, largely through the achievements of Napoleon Bonaparte, the Republic's youngest general.

Overview

The French Revolution sent shock waves through Europe, as the continent's remaining monarchs tried to stamp out the tide of republicanism. France was surrounded by enemies but fought them off, largely through the achievements of Napoleon Bonaparte, the Republic's youngest general. Within a decade he had become Consul, First Consul, and finally Emperor, creating a new dynasty and a new order in Europe. From 1803 until 1809 he seemed unbeatable, vanquishing his foes one after another. But his invasion of Russia in 1812 proved disastrous, and he soon faced a growing coalition of enemy powers. His defeat at the Battle of Waterloo marked the close of the Napoleonic Era, but not the end of the Napoleonic legend.
This marvelous, full-color book charts Napoleon's rise and fall and analyzes the weaponry and rival armies that were to transform nineteenth-century Europe. It includes over 160 superb illustrations, many of which have never previously been published, and maps that have been specially commissioned for the book.
