This book provides a thrilling account of Napoleon’s rise to power, from his humble beginnings on the island of Corsica to his becoming emperor over half of Europe. The focus is upon his military exploits, including his victories in battle after battle, followed by his exile to the island of Elba, his subsequent return to lead the disastrous Russian campaign, his final loss at Waterloo, and his last days on the lonely island of St. Helena.
This volume will bring Napoleon to life for its readers and is a part of the highly-acclaimed Children’s Heroes series, edited by John Lang. This book is scheduled for the student to read independently.
Note: The Yesterday’s Classics version is needed to correspond with the plans in the Revival to Revolution guide.
