Praise For Napoleon Bonaparte

“In all, it is a fascinating look at one of the world's most famous leaders and his campaigns. If you have no other books on the man, this would be an excellent choice.  A most interesting read and one that I am sure you will enjoy.” - Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com

"Plenty of books survey Napoleon's life: this provides a military account of his martial career and analyzes and assesses his roles." - The Midwest Book Review

"Napoleon Bonaparte is a prominent name among military figures due to his tactical genius. He was one of the greatest military commanders in history. This book contains details and analysis of the battles of Austerlitz and Waterloo; both are considered to be Napoleons greatest battles." - www.mataka.org (October 2010)

"Like France’s 'Little Corporal' himself, this informative 64-page book is a relatively
small package that wields a powerful influence that is out of all proportion to its relatively diminutive size." - Toy Soldier & Model Figure
