David Chandler has long been regarded as the greatest interpreter in modern times of the Napoleonic Era. His studies of the campaigns and tactics of Napoleon Bonaparte have set the standard for all subsequent writers. In Napoleon, Chandler places the emperor's 60 battles in the context of his entire life, beginning with his boyhood in Corsica. All of Napoleon's campaigns and endeavors are covered, with an eye to their influence on the later history of Europe, and with particular attention to Napoleon's characteristic use of commanders from humble backgrounds.
