10 Napoleonic Reads
Books that relive the Napoleonic Wars
Napoleon Bonaparte was arguably one of the greatest military commanders in known history, and he got plenty of time to hone his skills during the many, many battles that, spread out over 16 years, laid waste to large swathes of Europe, revolutionised warfare and altered the Continental map. In the two centuries since his final defeat at Waterloo, authors have seized on this period, churning out novels, non fiction and even poetry celebrating the victories and mourning the losses. Here are a few of our favourites - please leave yours in the comments below!
