Book Review:World History: Napoleon by John Hale
Recommended : High school,Young Adults, Adults
Napoleon was one of the greatest military leaders of all time.And hence my curiosity was piqued.
My favorite part of the book was the beginnings of Napoleon. Napoleon was born in Corsica.His rise to power began at end of the french revolution.He was ambitious leader.
His tenacity ,his ability to work alongside his men ,His willingness to admit his lack of knowledge and his travelling library are things that were admirable.
As all good things come to an end,his rise to power increased his paranoia and micromanagement which eventually led to his officials wanting him to abdicate his throne.The book ends with his last campaign against Russia and his imprisonment in St.Helen.
