From the Publisher"In Washington & Napoleon, Matthew Flynn and Stephen Griffin have written an excellent comparative analysis of two of history's most influential and fascinating characters. Their book is filled with thought-provoking insights into both men and their impact on history."
"A good and novel read based on a comparison of George Washington and Napoleon Bonaparte, something that has to the best of my knowledge never previously been attempted. There were, as the authors point out, many similarities between the two, but in the end what shines forth is one basic truth: that Washington was a great man and Bonaparte wasn't."
"Flynn and Griffin have broken the historical silence. Their thought-provoking comparative study of Washington and Napoleon is a much needed contribution toward the study of these two colossal figures."
"...lively...Flynn and Griffin demonstrate why it is important to write about U.S. history in a global context...”
