really liked it
bookshelves: napoleonic

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this account of Napoleon and I still think that Alistair Horne is one of the best historical writers on French history around today. The book's narrative flowed along well and it was a pleasure to read, I really did not notice the mistakes mentioned and in total they are only minor. Take the time to sit down and read this book, its worth it.

Manray9 I am a great fan of Horne. My favorite: The Savage War of Peace: Algeria 1954-1962.

'Aussie Rick' A great book Manray9, like you, Horne is one of my favourite historians. Have you read his book on Verdun?

Manray9 I did read the book on Verdun. I have his bio of Harold MacMillan, but haven't read it yet.

'Aussie Rick' I should have guessed :)
