The Sword of France

Regular price £10.99

Napoleon Bonaparte...a human 'comet' who rose to power in a France shattered by years of bloody revolution...a man whose genius and vision made him Emperor of the French Republic, and led to his historic redrawing of Europe's very boundaries. But genius has its price, and Napoleon's would see him sink slowly into solitude and crazed megalomania, finally betrayed by those who loved him most. "Sword of France" is a compelling story about brilliance and frailty; the nature of heroism and the status of the tragic hero.

It is a disturbing reminder that destiny of the world so often lies in the hands of such leaders.
