Patrice Gueniffey, the leading French historian of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic age, takes up the epic narrative at the heart of this turbulent period: the life of Napoleon himself, from his boyhood in Corsica, to his meteoric rise during the Italian and Egyptian campaigns, to his proclamation as Consul for Life in 1802.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Magnificent...Patrice Gueniffey's Bonaparte is beautifully written, and its portrait of Talleyrand is masterly. If you need more Napoleon, Gueniffey's next volume is a good bet.--Denis Boyles"Claremont Review of Books" (07/01/2015)
[The book's] mastery of the sources and authorities is remarkable...[Gueniffey's] principal interest lies not in his recreation of the battles, but in how they are connected not only to the man's psychology and character, but to the tumultuous history swirling around this most fabulous life...Bonaparte...is punctuated by Gueniffey's probing, his skepticism about much in Napoleonic historiography that he finds overwrought or mistaken, and his incessant questioning of just how much can be known for sure about Napoleon, whose motives are so elusive. Gueniffey's work, once completed, will be the dominant 'life' of our generation and a few to come.--David P. Jordan"History and Theory" (10/01/2015)
