Description

‘Masterly.’ Daily Mail

‘Stunning.’ History Today

‘Magnificent.’ Literary Review

Napoleon’s life reached its most extraordinary stage between 1805 and 1810. At war with Britain, Russia, and Austria, he unleashed his magnificent Grande Armee. The first resounding victory at Austerlitz was followed by a whirlwind of campaigns, and by 1810 he had divorced Josephine in order to marry the daughter of the Austrian Emperor. The Spirit of the Age illustrates in vivid detail the five years in which Napoleon appeared to be invincible.

Publisher Review

"The finest biography of Napoleon ever written . . . a wonderful amalgam of deep knowledge, elegant prose and compelling argument."--Telegraph "An extremely rich, multidimensional and fresh work . . . This is a truly magnificent book that deals masterfully with a pivotal movement in European history." --Literary Review "The scholarship is impressive, the narrative has the pace and panache appropriate to the subject and there is much that is new, particularly when Broers probes behind the glitzy facade of Bonaparte's empire." --The Times, Book of the Week
