Reviews

Praise for Napoleon by Paul Johnson:

"Paul Johnson . . . is a historian at the top his game. His judgments are sure. His historical range is sweeping. His storytelling is crisp and his writing elegant."
--The Baltimore Sun "The selection of the venerable British historian . . . Paul Johnson to write on Napoleon . . . has turned out to be a wise one: Johnson is succinct, critical, and deeply skeptical of the Napoleonic legend."
--The Atlantic Monthly "This is a jewel of a book; comprehensive, brief, and passionate."
--The Economist "Johnson provides an excellent overview . . . [He] presents a concise appraisal of Napoleon's career and a precise understanding of his enigmatic character."
