Synopsis

Napoleon The Story of the Little Corporal by Robert Burleigh

This is an illustrated biography focusing on the rise of one of history's most powerful and interesting men, Napoleon Bonaparte. Napoleon Bonaparte was born in Corsica and he was neither rich nor well-connected. Eventually, he would come to rule France and much of Europe - even crowning himself Emperor! How did he do it? Was it his military genius? His commanding personality? The circumstances of the time? Published to tie-in with the American Federation of the Arts touring exhibition on Napoleon, this biography will introduce young readers to one of the most important figures of Western history.
