Synopsis

Napoleon The Little General Who Wanted to Rule the World by Adrian Hadland

A tough little chap with a shrill voice and a horrible temper, Napoleon Bonaparte was one of the surprise heroes of history. He grew up to become the Emperor of France and, in 60 battles and 20 years of power and fame, he created an empire to rival Ancient Rome. But what he really wanted was to invade England and then rule the world. In 1815, with his troops stationed outside a small town called Waterloo, in Belgium, Boney faced the biggest test of his life as he prepared to take on the English army. Would he win? Could he? Adrian Hadland is a political analyst and media researcher living in Cape Town, South Africa. He has published five books, three for children, including the a biography of Nelson Mandela for the WHO WAS series.
