Description

The Napoleonic Wars saw fighting on an unprecedented scale in Europe and the Americas. It took the wealth of the British Empire, combined with the might of the continental armies, almost two decades to bring down one of the world's greatest military leaders and the empire that he had created. Napoleon's ultimate defeat was to determine the history of Europe for almost 100 years. From the frozen wastelands of Russia, through the brutal fighting in the Peninsula to the blood-soaked battlefield of Waterloo, this book tells the story of the dramatic rise and fall of the Napoleonic Empire.

informative and broad.

Great book. takes a broader look at the effects of the war globally.
I have read several books on this period, but this is the only one I can think of that touches on the Brittish East India Company, Haitian revolution, China, Japan, and many more often overlooked aspects.

One of the Best Books

I usually avoid comprehensive reviews of historical eras or global eras, since they are typically difficult to digest in a meaningful manner.
That said I found this narrative very easy to follow in that cover western historical content usually kept as isolated events.
I will likely listen to this narrative again.
