The Story of Napoleon: a Ladybird Adventure from History Book by L.Du Garde Peach


The Story of Napoleon: a Ladybird Adventure from History Book by L.Du Garde Peach

This Ladybird Book about the story of Napoleon is a gem from the Ladybird vintage archive. First published in 1968, this is a classic Ladybird hardback book, packed with information about one of the most famous soldiers in history. This new edition, published alongside the Story of Nelson two hundred years after the Battle of Waterloo, is exactly the same as the original, with a dust jacket and beautifully reproduced images. The story of Napoleon is told dramatically by L. du Garde Peach, and his adventures are wonderfully illustrated throughout the book.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
