Napoleon, A Short Biography

Robert Matteson JOHNSTON (1867 - 1920)

This is a 'lightning biography' which serves as an introduction to the field of Napoleonic history. Its purpose is to enable the ordinary reader or would-be student safely to take the first few steps in Napoleonic literature. This is not a short history, but a short biography - the one contains the other, but in a different key. (Summary by Beth Thomas and the Introduction)
